Ready to listen, guide, and encourage
How do I start learning from Bridget?
Helping teachers to have breakthroughs in their instruction is what Bridget loves most about being a Remote Coach. Educators look forward to their “face time” with Bridget, where they receive guidance and encouragement they can trust.
“Bridget delivers meaningful and impactful strategies in a manner that takes the fear of getting started out of the equation.”
“[Bridget] is knowledgable about what she does. She has a great knack for bringing people along and engaging them.”
Stedman Elementary School, Petersburg, AK
Called to coach
Before she began her role as Remote Coach, Bridget used her BA in Elementary Education from Indiana University to launch an 18-year career working with Seymour Community Schools in southern Indiana.
During her time at Seymour, she immersed herself in every possible opportunity to learn and grow and was always willing to share with colleagues via her blog, newsletter, and an always-growing Google drive. She spent years field-testing the strategies she learned from Smekens before ultimately joining our team as Remote Coach.
Bridget and her husband, Jason, live in Seymour, IN, where their three school-age children keep them busy with church, school, and whatever sport is currently in season.
