New Beginnings

Fall It’s fall in New Hampshire, mostly. Some days are still warm, and   some mornings see thick frost on the ground, so it’s hard to know from one day to the next what to expect.

As it is for all of us in education, fall is a busy time, and it feels more like a new year than does January 1, because it marks the beginning of the school calendar. When I left the classroom in 2011 I expected that to change. I was wrong; autumn is still busy and still marks the start of new things to come.

Each year, starting that very first fall,  I have presented training in differentiating instruction to all educators newly hired in a nearby school district. I see them three times, for a total of seven hours, and I show them ways to make it easier to reach all of their students using Myers-Briggs Type theory.  Feedback has been positive. Teachers find the ideas useful in their classrooms, and from those beginnings, my work has grown. This year, by the end of December, I will have presented eleven workshops, some based on MBTI/Differentiation, and some on teaching writing. It has been remarkable to see the growth of my little business and I am learning the truth of the adage, “Do what you love and success will follow.” I am ready to expand this work even further, and I’m excited about the possibilities.

I love to present. I love to teach. That passion has led to the creation of my business and this web site.

Yes, this page is new. Here, you can:

  • see what workshops I offer
  • keep up to date with new workshops
  • contact me for more information
  • read this blog, offer comments, and ask questions. Find out what I’m doing to keep current in the ever-changing field of education. I will write about professional doings — what I’m creating, what I’m reading, what I’m thinking about. I’ll probably toss in some personal information here and there as well, so that you can get to know me.

It’s good to be here; keep in touch, OK?
