I have been blessed to serve as the Head of School for over twenty years in Christian education. From starting a new Christian school to leading one of the largest Christian schools in the country, God has blessed me with a wealth of practical experience. I would be honored to share that experience with you.
Implementing Effective, Sustainable Technology Programs
The world has changed. Colleges and universities have changed. Business has
changed. The economy has changed. Technology has changed. Our parents have
changed. Our students have changed.
Our schools have not, at least not enough.
The U.S. Department of Commerce recently ranked 55 industry sectors by their level
of IT intensiveness. Education was ranked 55th, the lowest and below coal mining.
Yet, we claim to be preparing students for the 21st century.
We live in a world of disconnect where the classroom has stopped reflecting the
world outside of its walls. If you dropped a doctor of a 100 years ago in today’s
operating room, she would be lost. Yet, if you placed a teacher of 100 years ago in
our classrooms, she would not skip a beat.
I have conducted national research and implemented effective and sustainable 1:1 technology programs that empower students and teachers and that engage students in authentic learning while driving a school's mission forward. For more information see Briarwood Christian School's website that highlights this program.
Creating Engaging and Effective Multi-year Professional Development Programs
Having served with several corporations, a consultant with the Legal Services Corporation, and as Head of School for over twenty years, I have extensive experience in helping schools develop effective multi-year and spiraled professional development programs. These professional development programs empower teachers and students and align with a school's strategic, instructional, and technology objectives. This alignment produces systemic positive change that avoids the "this too shall pass" response to in-service training programs and instead propels the school forward in the realization of its mission.
