Professional Development

Professional development should be active and interactive, joyful and challenging. PD is best when it’s customized and differentiated to meet the needs of staff. I offer a variety of formats including workshops, on-site consulting, keynote talks, and small group and individual coaching. The three strands below give a starting point for some of the content we might explore together. Let’s work to craft a plan that best matches your school and district!

Effective Discipline and Management

Students learn best in a safe, supportive, and structured environment. There are many strategies and skills teachers can learn to create great learning environments for kids!

Great Academic Teaching and Learning

Teaching and learning should be joyful and challenging. It also shouldn’t overwhelm teachers! There are so many ways we can joyfully engage students!

Positive Adult Communities

Teachers need to be part of vibrant and joyful learning communities just like their students do. Learn practical strategies for creating strong adult communities in schools!

Mike Anderson came to our school because faculty and parents alike recognized a need for improved SEL at our school. The workshop provided practical, reasonable, researched-based tools and structures for us to adopt a common language and approach across all classrooms. I can't wait to see the shifts in action!
