Change doesn’t happen overnight. It isn’t as simple as investing in a handful of materials or booking a few workshops. It requires a cultural shift from the status quo, buy-in from school stakeholders, systemic support, visioning, hands-on implementation, and immersive experiences. You need someone dedicated to bring it all to life: That's me!
I get what it’s like to want to break free from an industrial model of schooling because you want more for your students and their education. I’ve led administrators and teachers in weaving respected pedagogies into the fabric of their schools, such as playful, concept-based approaches to inquiry within the esteemed International Baccalaureate program and British Columbia’s provincial curriculum. And I’m up for the challenge in your classroom, centre, or school. So press the Let's Talk button below to begin!
If you’re ready for a cultural shift but don’t know where to start or need help to keep the momentum going, Thinker in Residence is for you. You know systemic change isn’t a quick fix, and you’re prepared to invest the time and resources in bettering your school, your pedagogies, and your students’ education.
Take all of the hands-on experiences from a Pop-Up Studio workshop and blend them with the one-on-one personalization to make your project goals a reality. In this long-term partnership, we will meet regularly to discuss your hopes and challenges, and keep you accountable to a clear plan of action. And, of course, I’ll be there every step of the way.
+ dedicated commitment to the project scope and deadlines
+ Strategic visioning, personalized to your goals
+ Regular steering committee meetings in-person or online to review progress
+ Check-ins to keep you accountable and track progress
