PresentationsThe following are workshops or sessions that I have given on the topic of assessment. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in having me lead a training.
- The Fireproof Teacher (Keynote or Workshop): In many places, we don't have an issue recruiting teachers. We do, however, have a real issue retaining teachers. Instead of thriving, they are burning out. Together we explore the seven strategies to prevent teacher burnout and promote teacher success. I also offer practical, time-saving ideas so that teachers can avoid "busy" and find balance in a forty hour work week.
- Differentiated Professional Development (Workshop): I focus here on creating choice-driven blended professional development. We talk about the options, the tools, and the timing as each participant develops a framework for his or her school or district.
