Remote Educational Leadership Training

At the height of the pandemic, I was invited to help a new, innovative school form in Springfield, Massachusetts.  The principal, who had just moved from Texas, had designed a targeted instruction model where content-area specialists would provide whole class teaching, followed by small group instruction by special education teachers, dual language instructors and other specialists.  The model had many other elements and was quite complex.  

My task was to train the new administrators and instructional leaders to use Google Workspace for Education as a collaboration tool, supported by Asana for project management, to implement the new school over the course of a summer.  I had to very quickly develop strategies and training materials, as I was hired in late June and teachers would join us a month later, all coming from different parts of the country, and most new to remote teaching.  It was a wild ride, but we made it.
