Always A Lesson, LLC empowers educators towards effectiveness. It's sole mission is to provide the support and guidance educators want and need so that they can develop into their full potential. Gretchen focuses her work on guiding teacher leaders (peer mentors, cooperating teachers for student teachers, and instructional coaches) in developing and executing effective, empowering support models.

At Always A Lesson, we know educators lack ongoing support to grow. We believe providing access to quality professional development and mentorship to all levels of educators is essential to increase student achievement and teacher proficiency in every school building.

Gretchen, the owner of Always A Lesson, started blogging in early 2000 to capture all the LESSONS she was teaching and learning in her elementary classroom. As teachers became busier and busier over the years, Gretchen met them where they were... in the car, at the gym, doing housework around the house etc. The Empowering Educators podcast was born as an audio blog so teachers could get empowered on the go!

Since then, Gretchen continues to create services of support that she wished existed when she was in the classroom teaching students and in school buildings coaching teachers.

May you become the very best version of you possible.

Let Always A Lesson partner with you to make that happen today, tomorrow and always!
