Services I provide

I offer a variety of services to help improve teaching and learning growth. Obviously the core of what I offer is training on implementation of Trust-Based Observations for school employees who engage in school observers.

Trust-Based Observations(TBO) wants to help you transform your teacher observation/evaluation process and maximize your students’ learning. 

First and foremost TBO wants to cater the implementation training to you and the needs of your school and/or district. Whether it’s fully adopting or adapting Trust-Based Observations, we are here to provide support and training as you implement TBO.

Typical Trust Based Observations Training

The normal routine is to spend a week at your school(s), working with school leaders to implement Trust Based Observations. Weeks prior to the training TBO will schedule one or more distance consultation meetings to learn about your school(s), including culture, and its wants and needs. TBO will cater the training as appropriate based on these conversations.Training usually includes:

Learning the system basics

Learning all about the Trust-Based Observation/Reflection form

Practicing Trust-Based Observations with other school leaders and teachers (lots)

Additional Consulting Services

Creating a Student Success Center

I offer consultation on creating a Student Success Center at your school. Student Success Centers are designed to help ensure success for each student. The SSC involves all teachers and targets each student who is struggling academically, even if only in a single course, and provides individual or small group assistance to help students improve understanding. Additionally, to build student responsibility we’ve created, and share with you, our homework completion element of the Student Success Center which ‘encourages’ students to develop greater responsibility with taking care of their school responsibilities in a timely manner. The use of the center has seen huge leaps in student performance and grades, an improved student sense of success and belief in self, and increased student responsibility demonstrated by a dramatic increase in students completing independent work.

Creating a Senior Life Skills Lab

I offer consultation on the creation of a Life Skills Lab. As students prepare to move on towards independence after graduation there is an increasing sense of responsibility to prepare our graduates for the myriad of daily, weekly and monthly duties that are part of encapsulating the actions of successful adults. A Life Skills Lab addresses these duties. We’ve developed a program to prepare seniors for these responsibilities and are happy to share our program with you. We provide teaching and learning opportunities for any potential area that a senior might need to know about which will help them succeed on the next level. Anything from being a good roommate, to managing money to basic auto maintenance, laundry and beyond is taught. Students love the learning and find the bonding experiences of working on these life skills with friends in a relaxed environment to be very rewarding.
