Our Philosophy

The intention of each of our professional collaborations is to develop collective teacher efficacy and maximize students’ success.  At the heart of our process is working alongside students and teachers in classrooms.

We trust that:

  • student data, big and small, guides our work
  • teachers have the capacity to continually learn about their students as readers and writers
  • teachers are experts in their own practice and professional learning
  • effective professional collaborations should be responsive
  • current research combined with wisdom of practice leads to student growth
  • job embedded learning relies on modeling, coaching, feedback and reflection
  • long term relationships lead to transformational and lasting change
