Since 2008, I have provided monthly professional development for beginning teacher in Moberly School District. Professional learning formats range from whole day workshops to after school workshops. In addition, I coordinate the Moberly School District new teacher orientation, as well as provide training and support for our district mentors. Other forms of professional learning opportunities include a monthly newsletter, technology integration training, as well as classroom coaching. Topics include: Classroom management, Learning Targets & Feedback, Effective Lesson Design, Student Learning, Cooperative Learning, Parent Teacher Communication & Conferences, Technology for Learning

Annually in August: New Teacher Academy/BTA for area beginning teachers (since 2011)
