Professional Development

Interested in service-learning or project-based learning in your classroom, school, or district? Katy presents and facilitates workshops about how to create community-based, purpose driven service and project based learning with K-12 students, with a special focus on the middle grades. She has presented workshops and conference sessions about her research on service-learning and how to implement service-learning across a wide variety of schools and grade configurations. Previous workshops have ranged from presentations at national conferences such as the Association for Middle Level Education to state conferences here in Vermont, teaching undergraduate and graduate students and teachers at the Middle Grades Institute, and working directly with teachers and districts as a professional development coordinator. Katy also can lead book talks, workshops and discussions based on any of her books on the topics of personalized learning, service and project based learning, teacher attrition and sustainability, as well as workshops for adults and youth about finding your voice in writing.
