Hi! I'm Lindsay.
I help teachers design engaging, project-based curricula. I help schools amplify student leadership and advance racial and gender justice. Why? Because helping people of all ages pursue their passion, exercise their agency, and promote a more equitable world brings me more joy than Marie Kondo-ing my closet!
In my work with thousands of educators, I know are overworked and often, are not provided the type of professional development that will allow them to design and facilitate engaging curriculum without sacrificing their personal well-being.
When it comes to teaching for justice, countless teachers have told me they are afraid to say the wrong thing, they feel alone in pushing back against the myth of a “neutral” curriculum, and they don’t have the resources or support to design new curricula. They want to talk with their students about justice and injustice, bring their full selves to school, and design meaningful lessons that meet the needs of the students in front of them, but it feels like too big of an undertaking. So they mistakenly think they need to wait...to read more books or attend another PD...or just stick to the way they’ve always taught. I help educators recognize that teaching for justice is necessary for healing, it amplifies engagement, and creating justice-based units is totally do-able with an efficient, repeatable system.
Working with hundreds of leaders across dozens of schools, I've found administrators want to provide quality PD for teachers. They are encouraging more student voice and ready to pursue more equitable curriculum and policy. But, they don't have access to their own high-quality Professional Development on how to do this.
I help teacher and leaders who…
- Absolutely love their students
- Are excited to try new things
- Have passion for their work
- Want to grow their professional practice
- And feel like there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish all of the amazing things they're working on.
On a personal note, when I’m not working, I'm usually running while listening to my favorite podcasts, reading a book with the hopes of hitting my Goodreads Challenge target, or on the couch, watching Netflix with my partner, and our snuggle buddies Lucky, Jinx, and Mojo.
Students are more engaged and academically successful when they co-create their learning experiences.
Project-Based Curriculum Design
Rooted in justice, fostering student leadership, projects are best when designed to solve real problems.
