Elevating Teaching and Learning With Simple Innovations
We have heard it said many times over the years that teachers and leaders are “building the airplane as we fly”, and it is more true now than ever before. The pace of change, and the need for flexibility and innovation in education can be dizzying indeed! There is a gap between teacher preparatory programs, and the quickly-shifting world of today’s complex educational systems – from ever-evolving learning management systems, to hybrid teaching models, and better understandings about how to make schools safe and welcoming spaces for all students. Tiffany is an educator with 24 years of experience teaching, coaching, facilitating professional development, mentoring, and curriculum design. She is an expert at developing innovative solutions to help meet teachers’ and leaders’ rapidly changing needs. Whether you need school-wide professional development, or one-on-one instructional coaching support, The Fly Button will give you the help you need to get your teaching craft “off the ground”!
A listening session will help me to understand what your needs, priorities, budget, key deliverables, and timelines are. I want to know where you want to go, and how I can help you get there.
I will develop a project that fits your needs and budget – whether remote, in-person, one-off, or recurring. Your project may be short, or long-term, or I may have a grab-and-go product already developed, which you can easily implement to take flight on your own.
Throughout the duration of your project or session, I am available and responsive to your changing needs, and can be flexible to shift mid-course as the situation warrants. Through it all, we are copilots!

Let’s work together.
