We provide dynamic opportunities for learning about Gender and Sexuality Diversity. We help teachers, administrators, staff, coaches, counselors, trainees, board members, and leadership teams connect their learning to both the philosophical and practical aspects of PreK-12 education.
In my own time as a teacher, I sat through too many pedantic, uninspired professional development programs. In addition to being rather ordinary, these presentations were often disconnected from the reality of school life.
It’s not enough to be the expert in a particular subject area. Experts also need to understand:
the organized chaos of day-to-day school life
the way school communities operate on both small and large scales
how systemic change does and does not happen
Whether we are presenting at an Annual Conference or spending the day working at a school, Team Finch offers professional development programs that are contextualized and help participants apply their learning in immediate and meaningful ways.
