Professional learning is the rocket fuel that propels your school or district.

How can I help?

The best professional learning is local – you implement it, you follow up on it. However, you may need help planning it. That’s where I come in.

How can I help?

Hire Jenn to Plan PD that You Run Yourself

I can help you:

  • by designing a single professional learning session (including PPT, handouts, agenda, and discussion questions) for your leaders or teachers
  • determine a professional learning focus for the year and create a year-long plan
  • by planning a single or multiple-session book study you can conduct with a team of leaders, teachers, or parents
  • by creating a multiple-day training workshop for the summer to develop leaders or teachers

Hire Jenn to Do a Needs Assessment and Create a Plan to Improve

I can help you:

  • figure out what might be causing a certain problem at your school (low faculty morale, PD or coaching that doesn’t improve practice, teams that don’t produce results)
  • by proposing several suggestions for improving the problem
  • by serving as a thought partner to brainstorm best solutions and next steps to address the issue

Hire Jenn to Run Workshops for Leaders

I can help you by running workshops on topics including:

  • Managing difficult conversations calmly, gracefully, and productively
  • Instructional coaching and feedback
  • Establishing or improving leadership or teacher teams that get results
  • Developing emotional intelligence in leaders
  • Trust and communication to build relationships
  • Managing your time for impact
  • How to use The Best of the Marshall Memo (the book I co-wrote with Kim Marshall) to improve professional learning at your school
  • A series of workshops for the leaders at your school – anything from a Leadership 101 series to something that caters to your needs – which could include one in-person session and follow-up virtual sessions to discuss problems of practice
