Where did my passion start?
I specialize in coaching brand new teachers on how to implement real strategies to avoid burnout and overwhelm. I also coach administrators and their coaches on how to set their new teachers up for success. In this complex educational world, we approach teacher training with...
...the intention of retention
In 2006, I was a first year teacher, with little coaching, little direction, and a TON of uncertainty. That year, I was unsafe in my school for a single day, leading to one of the most transformative experiences of my life, and the publishing of my first book, "Throwing Rocks." I realized that my experiences could help SO MANY teachers, which is why I'm here today!
Hi, I'm Lindsey!
What can I do for Your School?
New Teacher Support
Do your new teachers need help setting boundaries, prioritizing their tasks, approaching feedback, creating more independent learners, figuring out systems for lesson planning, and more?
Do your coaches struggle with getting teachers to ask for help? Are your district initiatives large in number, making prioritization difficult? Are you, as a building leader, also overwhelmed?
Do you have teachers, even those with experience, who struggle to set boundaries and implement realistic systems? Do some of your new teachers need even more assistance?
New Teacher Academy
Is new teacher training "just one more thing" on your plate? Do you know that it matters, but feel pulled in too many directions? Are you unsure, at times, how to even begin supporting the new teachers in your district?
