Consulting & Presenting Services

 

After 14 years in middle school, high school and college classrooms, I now speak, write and consult on a wide variety of education-related topics.

But I still consider myself a teacher. I enjoy working with groups of all sizes to promote creative teaching and to encourage new ways of thinking about what goes on in today’s classrooms.

And while research and philosophies are nice, what educators really want is the integration of research with practical application. I want you to walk away with ideas and strategies that actually work and so all of our conversations will focus on applying philosophy to real-world, 21st century learning. 

I've had the chance to work with teachers on-site in Kansas and around the country at regional and national conferences.
