I feel like Ellin is part of our school district! She understands our school community so well. Each time she returns we pick up right where we left off. We have all grown by leaps and bounds thanks to Ellin's work in my district.
I would highly recommend professional development with Ellin Oliver Keene. She is masterful at modeling teaching, observing and providing feedback to teachers, and facilitating strategic planning with administrators. Working with Ellin Oliver Keene has without a doubt been the professional development activity that has had the greatest impact on our school.
Ellin completely changed the way we approach teaching reading in our district, and we have seen positive results in both the students and the teachers because of it. Ellin also helped us develop capacity within our staff by creating lab classrooms for topic studies, which give teachers opportunities to learn from each other and to participate in collaborative discussions. It's the best PD we have experienced, and Ellin helped us make it happen!
