Meeting Your Team
Keynote and Presentations
      T
An engaging keynote presentation brings forward the emerging need for school-family-community partnerships on a very different level from the traditional parental engagement.  It makes participants re-evaluate many assumptions and old mental models as well as search for ways to move forward.

The interactive format will allow participants to pause, think, and discuss their thoughts with colleagues for an important paradigm shift. Keynotes are tailored to your schools’ specific needs.

The three-stage partnership-building framework allows each educator or leader to start where she/he is at the time with strategies that immediately can be put into practice. Interactive workshops utilize thinking routines/maps, discussions, role playing, and self-assessments.

Short workshops (1 hour) are focused on specific areas of a culture of partnerships formation and can be combined in a day-long workshop (6 hours)

I will work with your administrators, staff, and families to provide needs assessments, a recommended plan of action, and, if desired, assist with an actual implementation: developing action teams to plan and implement partnership activities; developing new inventories that define leadership and changes in schools and districts operating procedures and policies; training of staff and parent leaders; reaching school-affiliated and community organizations.

Projects vary.
