Auditing Existing Co-Teaching Programs: Changes for Student Success AA #1891- Region 2

Speaker Information

Lisa M. Harrod has been the Superintendent of Manteno Community Unit School District No 5 since July of 2013. She is a National Education Consultant who specializes in leadership, Co-Teaching, and systemic school reform. She works with school districts and Regional Offices of Education across Illinois to provide high quality professional development to educators. Her workshops are engaging and focus on practical strategies that educators can implement immediately. Lisa was a finalist for the 2015 National Superintendent of the Year, was named Phi Delta Kappa International Educator of the Year in 2010, Phi Delta Kappa International Emergent Leader in 2008, and received the Steger School District Distinguished Educator Award in 2007. Lisa resides in Manteno with her wonderfully supportive husband, Jason, and her three young children Nathan, Connor, and Karlie.

This academy will focus on providing administrators with tools for continually auditing their existing co-teaching programs. Content will include providing participants with the research or models that promote student success in both the academic and social-emotional realms, and how to identify teaching strategies that promote mastery learning and a high level of engagement for all learners. The academy will contain a balance of lessons from the field, as well as a description of how to serve as a coach to provide critical support and feedback to teams. Participants will leave with the knowledge of the various models of co-teaching, how to design strategies for conflict resolution and how to accurately measure specific outcomes for district programs. Enhanced collaboration and parent communication will be discussed and specific examples will be provided to participants. Participants should be ready to discuss any current programs or plans to implement a co-teaching classroom or program.
