Hi, I'm Gretchen. 

I EMPOWER TEACHER LEADERS TO BECOME MORE EFFECTIVE FOR THOSE THEY LEAD  

from peer mentors and cooperating teachers leading in their classrooms to instructional coaches leading in their school building.

There is ALWAYS A LESSON to be learned!

Gain Clarity.            Gain Confidence.            Gain Support.

I believe great educators will remain in the profession if they are supported and guided towards excellence.

Educators lack ongoing support as they gain years of experience. This leads to burn out and a potential exit out of the profession. Get the support you deserve and a community to lean on. You'll gain clarity on how to improve and excel in your role so you can love what you do again. Growth doesn't happen on your own. Let's do this together!

What am I here to do for you?

As a teacher, teacher leader and now teacher trainer, there are many lessons I have learned about what makes teachers effective. Through the content I share on my website, I empower you to reach your potential. Click to listen --->

"I am an educator of a decade, passionate about cultivating talent in aspiring and new teachers through practical tips and strategies. My blog, book, and podcast are geared towards empowering teachers to enter the profession and stay there due to the advice and encouragement I provide. We have a real need in our nation for strong leaders in classrooms, and I believe its my calling and duty to coach teachers to achieve and maintain best teaching practices in order to drive the growth and success of our students in and outside the classroom."
