H.O.P.E. Education exists to provide the tools and coaching for teachers to grow in hope, organization, passion and excellence in their teaching while maintaining balanced lives. H.O.P.E. teachers teach with great skill and joy every day.
As a teacher new to primary grades, I was the blind leading the blind. Sure I had experience teaching older students, excitement and creativity, but I lacked experience with young learners. Under Lisa's direction, I was able to establish organization and routines that worked for my young students freeing me up to just teach.
After conferencing with me and observing my class, Lisa constructed a realistic plan to move me and my class forward. She helped me reorganize, create a workable schedule and taught me more effective teaching methods. She taught, observed, modeled, coached, tweaked and embodied all she asked me to do in my own classroom.
Using her methods, I was able to bring 98% of students in my class to read and write above grade level standards by the end of the year.
Lisa has been my "go to" teaching support for years. Whenever I need some direction with a difficult class, new way to approach a concept or subject or just confirmation that I am on the right track, she has been just a coaching call away.
Teaching will always be a complex profession. Lisa's insight and coaching makes the path clear.
