  • NEW ZEALAND TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The New Zealand education program is known throughout the world for their elementary reading and math curricula. Studying abroad prepares both undergraduate and qualified teachers with cultural and self awareness and can prepare them for leadership roles in a global community. Placements in New Zealand classrooms to complete a 2 - 16 week teacher practicum will give participants valuable and classroom-ready skills that can be implemented immediately in your literacy teaching. This program will help to gain a significant competitive edge in the fierce job market.  In addition to showing interest in diversity and international issues, going abroad also demonstrates many other traits that potential employers may find valuable.


​Coaching

Mastering literacy instruction takes constant effort and practice. Engaging me to coach staff will:

  • Provide long-term, sustained professional development for PreK-8th grade teachers resulting in deep knowledge and implementation of literacy teaching and learning.
  • Provide in-classroom modeling and coaching for PreK-8 teachers.
  • Develop literacy coaches in your school system to build capacity to support and sustain transfer of theory and research into classroom best practices.
