And here’s the best part…
With each training, we provide lesson plans, activities, and resources to help your staff implement new learning the very next day.
We know it can be challenging to apply new methods and concepts after a full day of professional learning. That’s why we provide your staff with a digital resource bundle that includes everything they need to use the frameworks and strategies we teach.
As part of the training, our consultants demonstrate how to use these resources so that teachers will feel confident and equipped to use them in their classrooms while their learning is still top of mind.
Your teachers will walk away with tools and knowledge so their professional learning impacts not only their instruction but also student success.
Ready to get started? Here’s how it works…
Book a call with Kim or one of her consultants to talk about the needs of your staff and how we can best serve them and your school as a whole.
Let us know the dates and times that work for you and we’ll get them scheduled with one of our consultants.
Two weeks before, you’ll receive an outline of the training schedule, digital resources for you to print and make copies to have at the training for your staff, and any other details for that day.
Learn alongside your staff as your Strobel Education consultant provides highly engaging and interactive training for your faculty.
