Tailored on-site professional learning, K-8
Creating solutions to all your PL needs
Effective professional learning (PL) occurs over a period of time across a whole school and requires a strategic approach. Anita works with you to design a long-term tailored Professional Learning plan that supports your school’s target areas for improvement. For large-scale project work, Anita works with Communities of Schools’ Coordinators and Regional Consultants to design and deliver on-site and online professional learning to every school in their Region. Anita brings her infectious passion, practical ideas and professional experience as both a classroom teacher and consultant to your school.
She can become your schools learning partner for up to a three year period to support your schools identified target areas, goals and needs.
Anita's proven track record for developing and sustaining a Whole School Approach for the teaching and learning of Mathematics, K-6 is largely based on her ability to translate curriculum into classroom practice using tasks, tools and talk that is grounded in current research. Her focus is on:
- using practical resources that are readily available to schools
- modelling the use of hands-on concrete materials and mathematical language to promote conceptual understanding for students through reasoning
- empowering teachers with pedagogical content knowledge in Mathematics and Numeracy
- providing teachers with the understanding, confidence and skills to differentiate and scaffold learning.
