Language Proficiency Professional Development

Coaching for Teachers and Administrators

Improved language learning starts with professional development for teachers and administrators. Teaching languages from a textbook isn’t meeting the needs of learners today.

Engage your teams in their understanding of the proficiency descriptors, assessment analysis, and data-informed curriculum practices.

I want to thank you again for the amazing PD you provided us. I felt you did a superior job then and after meeting with the teachers last week it was even more evident that you have opened doors and windows. Your presentation was intentional in so many ways and that in itself serves as a great model for the teachers. I will be updating the staff on our summer work and will leave the description of your presentation to the teachers who are still glowing with their new understanding of their role as educators. Their enthusiasm is awesome to say the least. Thank you again for your energy, your enthusiasm, and your devotion to our profession. Looking forward to many more opportunities to collaborate.
