Today I am talking with Dr. Sherry MacBury from www.betterlesson.com.

Sherry_MacBury.jpg  betterlesson_logo.png

Sherry is the Director of Partnerships in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, DC for Better Lesson. She was a turnaround principal of two different high schools among other educational positions.

I recently had a chance to hear her speak at a symposium about educational innovations and thought that I would share BetterLesson.com with you. 

BetterLesson is a personalized professional development program for teachers.

reflection_missing.jpg

The teacher talks twice monthly with a live, experienced teacher coach. The sessions last 30-45 minutes and the teacher creates a digital portfolio as a result of their talks. The coaching sessions are held virtually.

coaches_350.jpg

When you get a chance take a look at the page of betterlesson.com where you are introduced to the coaches and you will see the vast number of years that each coach has had in the classroom as well as get to know each of them a little bit.

 

Thanks for listening!

Enjoy!

Season 5 will be back in February, and I want to leave you with some powerful ideas for the weeks ahead. Right after the holidays, we tend to be thinking about resolutions, new habits, getting healthier, making better choices...and most of this just turns out to be wishful thinking. We don’t stick with it. In this episode, we'll explore why that is, and how creating change is probably easier than you think.
