Areas of Expertise
Curriculum, Assessment, & Instructional Design
Is your curriculum outdated or is there too much on the teacher’s plate? Given how rapidly things change, are you struggling to create a coherent curriculum that allows for flexibility? In what ways do you encourage collaboration among the teachers?
Do students constantly ask. why are we learning this? Do they feel they have a voice in the design and choices they may need to feel invited to work and meet the challenges? Do students have a variety of ways that they can show what they know?
Evaluation, Grading, & Reporting
Do students struggle to see how their work has improved over time? Can students use scoring tools to guide their work? Is the report card failing to provide a complete picture of student performance?
I have worked with Allison for over 15 years. What she brings to the table is an ability to take your idea and translate it into what others can understand; she brings vision, clarity, and kindness.
Allison treats all with whom she works as colleagues and fellow travelers on the road. As a result, she creates a community of learners that last a lifetime. She has a particular strength and centering students and personalizing learning to them.
