"Professional" Development

      Professional Development

   My goal is to increase my professional development activity in Southwest Michigan. 

  Currently, I am currently conducting a program of professional development in the Dowagiac Schools in Southwest Michigan. It is two sessions designed to affirm teachers and administrators by emphasizing to them the gravity of what they do for young people. We will also help them maintain optimism and enthusiasm as they "endure" some of the (often unreasonable) expectations of them. 

   I am flexible in design of professional development and will custom-tailor a program to meet your school need and can offer one-half, one, and two-day development programs. Our strategy is to improve education by "fortifying" teachers, restoring their belief in their purpose in education. 

   An added feature of our professional development is that we can offer the option of teachers and administrators to combine it with graduate credit.
