My Vision:Apple-Marbles.jpg

Have you ever sat in an inservice and wondered, "How does this apply to me?" or "When am I ever going to use this?" or even "My time could be better utilized in my classroom or making copies!"?

Well, many of us (including myself) have had those same thoughts. The truth is that many teachers, particularly at the secondary level, live in solitude unable or unwilling to collaborate or see what others around them are doing. My vision is that this will change.

I would like to come to your school and show teachers ways to take what they are already doing well and take it to the next level. I don't want my thoughts and plans to be "something else they are making me do". These are real steps, ideas, and tools that will help your faculty, department, or small group grow. I have had experience working with and presenting to teachers on the following topics:
  • Technology Integration
  • Professional Learning Communities
  • Engaging Learning
  • Hooking the Reluctant Learner
  • Teacher Productivity
  • Virtual Learning Environments
  • Project Based Learning
  • Cross-Curriculum Teaching
  • Overcoming Budget Obstacles
  • Team Building
  • Basic to Advanced Technology Skills
  • National Boards for Professional Teaching Standards
  • Digital Storytelling

I am willing to research and bring resources that will work for any subject area or grade level.
