Typical PD provider approach
Smekens Education approach
A well-meaning author or expert leads a boring session that leaves teachers grumbling.
Time flies as teachers are engaged in learning that is fun and motivating.
Experts tell teachers what they are supposed to do but don’t explain how to do it.
Down-to-earth consultants pull from their own classroom experiences to share simple and effective ways to make change happen in the classroom.
Professional development materials are plentiful but lack relevance and functionality.
Handouts and materials are attractive, easy to follow, and ready to use.
Concepts and strategies contradict previous professional learning from the same company.
All professional learning is tied together by a core set of vocabulary and strategies that is consistent in every presentation and across the K-12 spectrum.
You have to purchase an expensive program that accompanies the training.
Energy, enthusiasm, and best-practice strategies are delivered without the requirement of purchasing any additional resources.
During on-site professional development, the expert delivers a canned presentation that he or she delivers at every school.

Every on-site or virtual consultation is customized to address the unique needs of the participants, making the experience extra personal.
