Our first meeting is complimentary. There, we will discuss the needs and goals for your school and staff, and I will make suggestions for how I can support those goals. I will then provide a quote for services.
Workshops and Coaching
I provide workshops on writing instruction including; Understanding Student-centered Writing Instruction, Shared and Interactive Writing, Conferring, Small Groups and Data Collection and Analysis.
As research tells us, workshops and trainings alone do not create change in teacher instruction. Therefore, any workshops I provide would be followed up with coaching, whether in the form of individual sessions, or collaborative groups such as grade-levels or content areas.
I also provide individual coaching cycles where the focus is on teacher goals. The number of cycles and teachers supported are decided upon between myself and administration.
If you are looking for support with evaluating and enhancing your school or district's writing program, I am happy to meet with you, and then work together to create a program that provides research-based instruction with quality resources.
Phone & Email Support
I am often available to those I support through phone calls or texts, email, Voxer, and/or Marco Polo.

Book a Complimentary Discovery Call
This call will allow you to get to know more about me and what I offer. We will discuss the goals you have for your district, possible next steps you may take and whether or not I am the right person to support you in your work!
When I am working with a school on a bi-monthly or monthly basis, we will implement coaching cycles tailored to teacher needs and goals, where the teacher and I will work side by side, choosing a focus, planning units and lessons, and evaluating progress. Each cycle includes identifying a goal, learning new techniques, making improvements, reflection and feedback.
I am also able to support schools and teachers by meeting with groups a few times per year, where we would implement a lab-site structure for coaching, as well as planning and data analysis meetings.
