Courses

Even the most capable staff members need professional development. Not only does learning help us development new skills, but it stimulates our creativity. Sometimes it even helps us bring a fresh perspective to our everyday work.

Who doesn't want that?

So I've created virtual classes to support your staff's learning goals. You'll find on-demand video lessons with downloadable note pages.

And where it's appropriate, I've included sample documents, and worksheets.

While these are self-paced courses, students can post questions inside each lesson and receive an answer from me.

Each class is licensed for a single student. If you'd like to arrange for 5 or more students to enroll at one time, please contact me to discuss it.

Below you'll find a descriptions for my current classes.
