We have gone remote! In addition to onsite training, Beth is currently offering a variety of remote PD options as well as remote classroom coaching. Because Picturing Writing and Image-Making are evidence-based literacy models, professional development, instructional material, and art supplies can be paid for using Title I, II, III, IV-A, and V Funds, ESSER III Funds, and graduate credit reimbursement funds through your district. A range of graduate credit course options are available for experiential workshops, classroom mentoring, and follow-up implementation.
Email Beth.Olshansky@comcast.net to set up a Zoom or phone meeting to discuss options for designing professional development (virtual or onsite) to meet your individual, building or district needs.
