Comprehension & Communication: Improving the Core Skills

What our professional development needs to be:


As a teacher, I went to too many workshops that had nothing I could use in the classroom. In order to make positive, behavioral changes we have to show teachers what they can do tomorrow.


What is happening now and what is needed now?  I focus on the critical skills students will need to be successful: oral communication and effectively using technology.


How often have you heard laughter at staff development?  Humor aids learning, so expect to enjoy the presentations.

The students in your class have changed.

Are we preparing students for the world of 2026, the year today's kindergarteners will graduate? What are the fundamental skills needed for school and beyond?
