PD —

In the chaotic return from winter break, I have neglected to share that my webinar requests and presentations are back!

Please join me – belatedly – for a webinar on phonics, or join me in real-time next week for a webinar on teacher advocacy.

Disclaimer: I get paid the same regardless of attendance numbers. I realize this can be cost prohibitive so a like, share, and words of encouragement are also welcomed 🤗

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This week, allow me to remind you that Black History Month is right around the corner!

Given the past two years there are even more resources available to us, even more plans and ideas to integrate, include, and invigorate our instruction.

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend–much deserved–and I can’t wait to hear about what you’ve done in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., and I can’t for next month . . . all the months!

November: Monthly Advice–Reminder

As we head into the final two weeks of November, I am reminded, and will remind others, to take some time and double-check plans . . . this month, and every month: Have I included Indigneous voices? This month in particular: How will I ensure my instruction, my holiday recognition, is inclusive, well-rounded, whole?

Take a moment. Reflect. Add to your instruction.

Webinar Time!

I have returned to professional development; I am back presenting webinars!

Join me for a new topic, a very relevant and needed discussion on the unique needs of the Latin/Latine/Latinx community.

My hope and goal: a focused opportunity to evaluate and recommit ourselves to differentiation–every child deserves a holistic educational environment that reaffirms their potential, and propels their learning.

–As always: I understand cost can be prohibitive; so I offer a reminder that claps, share, likes, words of encouragement are equally welcomed & valued gestures of support 🖤

Summer Learning!

A repeat of all my work this past year–replete with additions, updates, and clarifications based on my initial presentation(s) and feedback. It’s been quite the July — and I still have a certification series to go!

Already presented (and available on-demand):

A series to go:

These webinars have served as a tremendous growth opportunity for me. I have had to review what is most important to my work and research for every topic. I have had to play with technology and visual organization. I have had to rehearse definitions, arguments, concepts, frameworks, and possible Q & A. I feel more and more prepared, more and more inspired with each presentation–and I hope you can join me, share this opportunity, or provide me with added ideas as I move forward and keep presenting!
