Educator, Designer, and Instructional Coach.
I am an educator with over a decade of experience in the physical and virtual classroom. In addition, I work as an instructional coach, consultant, professional development designer, and webinar presenter. In both instruction and professional development design, I believe that simple solutions and design lead to highly effective results and an engaged learning community. Using an approach I call microinstruction, I seek to provide solutions in the most efficient and succinct manner possible. Check out the video below to get a quick summary of this approach and why this approach is proven to be successful.
While being a classroom teacher, I provide consulting, instructional coaching, and professional development design services for schools, districts, cohorts, and organizations. Rates start at $75 per hour for consulting/materials design and $300 for developing a one hour webinar or presentation. This flat rate includes initial consultation, presentation, and supplemental resources. Sliding rate are available for some non-profit organizations.
