Sometimes we have the best of intentions when we implement a program. We follow the steps, monitor progress, and maybe even achieve some defined goals. Yet if a program is truly to be effective, it has to impact more than an issue or objective. It has to change us as a person. Only then will we carry forward all we have learned in all that we do. The Moore Well-Being Program affects change from the inside out.See Program Details

It's increasingly common for more than one teacher to be in a classroom at a time, with teachers for special education and English as a second language being expected to collaborate. Teachers are often thrown into this collaboration without training and trouble ensues. I can help reduce the challenges by providing co-teachers with training on the models of co-teaching, helping co-teachers identify the model they would like to use, as well as the structures to support future collaboration.
When the communication among the adults in a school community is honest, clear and kind, people thrive. When it is not, people leave, fight or are unhappy. I have found that when people have the skills and support to engage in healthy work communication, school culture can shift dramatically. I design workshops for schools that help people develop the skill set to engage in healthy communication in the school setting. I can customize workshops for teachers, administrators and caregivers/parents.Download FlyerView Case Studies
DiSC is a questionnaire for school staff to help them better understand how they behave at work and how they respond to conflict. The results are then printed, generating an individual profile for each person, providing them with significant insight into how they can best work with others in school.

To help grade level teams or departments work well together, it’s crucial that members have a better understanding of themselves in relation to others. This program begins with DiSC questionnaire followed by thoughtful, rich professional development to help them build Trust, Healthy Conflict Management, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. This work is tailored to the complex context of schooling.

These 12 skills are responsible for everything we do and many educators are unaware that they exist. Is organization a problem for students? Is impulse control a challenge for some students?
