Creating Teacher Leaders
My workshops are most effective when paired with Teacher Coaching. I was a Teacher Supervisor for Columbia University’s Teachers College, New York University and Hunter College. I’ve also hosted seven student teachers and was an Instructional Coach for two years. My coaching experience has shown me that providing no more than two next steps is most effective. In debriefs with teachers, I clearly lay out detailed instructions on how those next steps should look and sound. I advise several rounds of observations each year to ensure fidelity to the dual language model and accurate implementation of best practices.
