What People Are Saying About LAPDA COURSES

The Inspired Educator, The Inspired Learner – Jennifer Stanchfield

"I can not say enough about this course! It is the only course Ive ever taken that modeled best practices for education. As a student, I was engaged in meaningful, experiential learning and could use that experience to turn around and teach my students. It was engaging, research-based, and highly relevant to our work."

Google Tools for Schools (GTFS) Lucie deLaBruere & Linda McSweeney

"The most important outcome of this was was becoming more familiar and comfortable with a variety pf Google Tools to incorporate immediately into my teaching and professional practice. Also witnessing what other classmates achieved gives me the confidence to try new things I wasnt ready to try before."

Consultation & Collaboration in the School with Mary Lundeen

"This course emphasizes collaborative practice via discussion and reading, as I learn new strategies I was able to try them out each week, and as my repertoire grows larger my stress levels went down. This course is Very Beneficial!"

"I received Inspiration and encouragement to change my teaching practices in the goal of watching students get a real and lasting meaning from science studies"

Principals Toolkit: Quality Conversations in a Common Core Kind of World with Susette Bollard

"" Another awesome tool for my ever expanding toolkit - I learned a lot about myself in this workshop & am excited to begin to implement these new tools!""

Jen Berry
Direct Instructional Writing Process in Grades 3-8 with Martha Dubuque

"This class has made me think of teaching writing in a whole new light. I have shifted my thinking from teaching writing genres and the writing process to one of teaching writers. This is so powerful, I think it will result in positive outcomes for my students. This is by far the best class I have ever taken"

Leah Griggs
Instructional Leadership Toolkit: Science Strand with Deanna Bailey

"I am writing this message as feedback for a recent training I attended with a few of my teachers.  The PD was called Instructional leadership Toolkit: Science Strand. I have been to many trainings over the years that were good, but the combination of the first day's information and the second day's class observations really worked for my teachers.  Each of the 3 who were there for the second day has not only embraced several of the practices, but they have willingly shared their practice with other teachers. Not surprisingly, the biggest impact is with the students.  Teachers are reporting that students who often had a difficult time with science in the past are now more successful.  The organization of the instructional sequence, the anchoring event, the public notes, and even the giant white boards have all moved our science teaching forward. I would sincerely like to thank you for this quality PD and hope we can attend more in the future."
