Effective K12 Schools

Let's Create a Love of Learning

Looking for an innovative workshop?

We offer workshops around the world for schools seeking research-based strategies to improve instruction, increase achievement, and become more effective. We are not your typical professional development speakers. Effective K12 Schools workshops are interactive and relevant to all educators. We don't just stand and lecture, we facilitate learning through collaboration, discussion, experimenting. Contact us to inquire about availability and cost to book a presenter.

We offer workshops on the following topics:


  • Instructional Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement

  • Predictors of At-Risk Students & Interventions to Decrease Dropout Rates

  • You've Collected the Data, What's Next?

  • Building a Team: Positive Home-School Relations

  • Effective Strategies for Communicating with Staff, Parents, Students, and Community

Contact us at stscott@ek12schools.com if you have other professional development needs.


What edUCATORs are saying about our workshops...


"Thank you so much for today's lesson. I absolutely loved it and go so many ideas. It's the first time I've really gotten writing ideas for math. I look forward to more classes you teach."


"It was one of the most engaging workshops I have attended this year. I was surprised when it was time to leave. Your ideas and generosity has impacted me and will multiply the impact it has on other teachers and our students for many generations!"


"You've inspired me in new ways!"


"Great information! Plenty of time to discuss and participate. Well presented and already in use the next day after this class."


"The most helpful thing I learned today was how to make vocabulary instruction come alive!"


"Provided the material and knowledge I was looking for to make me more successful in my classroom."


"I learned new ways to keep my students actively engaged. For students with Autism, keeping them engaged the entire day is of most importance."


"Critical thinking and engaging activities that further support IPI [Inventory of Instructional Practices] and the Arizona College and Career Readiness goals."


"This training will assist me in my classroom: critical thinking and higher order thinking related to problem solving and engaging student interest in deeper learning."


"Vocabulary is a key part of the new AZ College and Career Readiness Standards. Leaving this workshop with multiple activities for vocabulary development can only help my students do well on any assessment."
