You’ve made your intervention plans and have a strong start, but now it is time to assess and adjust. It’s the continuous part of continuous improvement that is challenging! Just like those New Year’s Resolutions we might be considering, goals set with hope and enthusiasm can quickly lose momentum without accountability.
This webinar will discuss how district and campus leaders can provide systematic follow-up and support for MTSS goals.
Join this webinar to learn:
How to cultivate a culture of continuous improvement with your staff.
How to set goals for educators as well as for students.
What to do with intervention plans when goals aren’t met.

Teresa is an Educational Consultant with Branching Minds. She has had the privilege in her 30 year public education career to serve in a variety of roles where she has honed her skills as a classroom practitioner, coach and education leader. She served for over 20 years as a classroom teacher teaching almost every grade from 1st- 12th. At the school level and district level, Teresa held roles as a literacy coach, instructional coach, program academic specialist, district coordinating teacher for secondary literacy and the Director for Student Engagement in the Office of Equity Affairs in the largest school district in North Carolina. All of Teresa’s experiences have helped her gain expertise in working with students and families to co-create teaching and learning spaces and experiences that center and affirm our students’ and families’ cultural heritages as assets.
Teresa is also a mom and is pretty proud of the four amazing human beings she raised. You’ll often find her hanging out with them talking books, social issues and (currently) cheering on her youngest as a college swimmer.
