In addition to onsite consultation, 1-1 online consultation can be arranged. As online consultation packages are developed they will be added below. All purchases at this time are made through my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Have you ever stood in your empty classroom at the beginning of the year and just not known where to start? Have you gotten part way through the year and realized the space or the supports in the space just weren’t working? I have many teachers email me with questions about how to best set up their classroom or for organization strategies and I wish I could help everyone. As part of my work consulting and training in schools in the past 20 years, I have set up multiple classrooms every year in all different kinds of environments for all different kinds and ages of students. The 1-1 Online Consultation for Classroom Setup is an opportunity for you and I to meet 1-1 online to talk specifically about your classroom and how you can arrange it to best meet your students’ needs.
- To make the most of this consultation, you will need to take pictures of your classroom and email them to me. If you can, draw a rough outline of your room and the furniture you have available.
- Then we will set up a time for us to meet online through Facetime or Skype, preferably while you are in your classroom so we can try out some things and I can see the room first hand to ask questions. Over the course of 45-90 minutes (depending on how long we need) we will talk about your classroom and needs.
- The focus of the consultation will be on helping you set up the physical environment and visual cues. We can talk about the type of students you serve as well as staffing. Ethically I cannot give advice about specific students in your class, nor can you share that confidential information. However, this 1-1 virtual consultation will allow me to give some pointers about how to best schedule and organize the classroom environment to keep students with special needs engaged throughout the day.
- At the end of the session, we will either develop a floor plan and tips for organization or I will do so afterwards based on our discussion and send it to you.
