Staff Development & Mentoring
Our extensive experience in administration, classroom instruction, educational research, staff development and professional coaching have prepared us well.
A highly interactive approach is used in trainings and presentations that will incorporate discussion, cooperative learning, and extensive use of multi-media, while utilizing some of Harvey Silver’s “Tools for Thoughtful Assessment”. Presentations are researched based, focusing on pedagogy that promotes a positive school/classroom culture leading to a high level of engagement. Topics include:
- Intrinsic Motivation
- Building a positive culture
- Negativity & Self Doubt
- Longing & Transformation
Trainings and Presentations can be tailored for educational leaders, classroom teachers and also businesses and organizations.
Root-Ed provides one-on-one and small group mentoring/support for administrators which focuses on root issues that lead to continuing transformation for leaders.
