Benefits of In-Person Workshops
A teachers work doesn’t end when she steps out of her classroom. Being a life-long learner makes one a great teacher and allows them to go beyond the textbook. When teachers are able to attend an in person workshop it allows them to not only gather a hands-on grasp at new knowledge but also time to collaborate with peers in different areas. As educators we know that when students remember 70% of what they discuss, 80% of what they discuss and 90% of what they teach others.
“Really helped me with ideas because my notebooks are bad! This may fill in gaps for kids!” – middle school teacher
“Loved this session! Got me excited about the school year and gave me great ideas!” – 7th grade math teacher
“Great activities. I think these can really engage students in class. “Flippables” also great to engage SPED kids in understanding process steps. Activities would really help students to take ownership of their work.” – middle school math teacher
“Great tools to use in the classroom to spice up teaching!” – Algebra 1 teacher
On-Site Workshop Costs
Full day $850*
Half day $500*
Supply fee (if needed) $100
*Travel expenses (transportation, accommodations, food, etc) are additional.
No school, district or resource center will be turned away. I love to travel and meet new teachers who are passionate about being lifelong learners.
Materials to be copied will be provided at least 1 week prior to workshop. Access to a projector and document camera are necessary for most workshops. Personal laptop will be provided. Door prizes are done in every workshop.
Skype sessions with Jennifer Smith of Smith Curriculum & Consulting are now available! These 2 hour sessions are available in a one-on-one format or small group format (Small groups consist of less than 20 participants. Breaking participants into multiple groups is perfectly fine.).
The goal of a Skype session is to provide you with tools to add to your bucket to guide you along with Interactive Notebooks, Differentiation and More. No topic is off limits as you set the road map for your session. For more information on Skype Workshops, see this page.
