Leading the Learning®

This six-day workshop series is designed to support instructional leaders as they strive to create the conditions in which the supervision and evaluation process can be directly linked to teacher professional growth and student learning. This series provides the ideal learning opportunity for administrators implementing new and more rigorous teacher evaluation systems. Participants not only build their own knowledge base and skillfulness at recognizing best practice in teaching and learning, they move beyond a singular focus on accountability and develop expertise in implementing evaluation systems in ways that provide growth-producing feedback and promote collegiality.

Teacher Leader Academies

In collaboration with Jeanne Spiller, the Director of Professional Development, she leads Coaching Academies that include workshops, planning sessions, and one-on-one coaching sessions. They use the Teacher Leader Essentials and more as important resources. 

Julie McVicker, Just ASK Senior Consultant, worked side-by-side with Traci Wodlinger, Director of Professional Development, in Eagle County School District, Colorado, leading a Coaching Academy. That district has a cutting edge supervision and evaluation system that provides multiple levels of professional growth opportunities. They used The 21st Century Mentor’s Handbook and Creating a Culture for Learning.
