COACHING AND TRAINING FOR SCHOOL LEADERS AND TEACHERS

At the Institute for Excellence in Education, we focus on supporting students by increasing the capacity of those who serve them, teachers and school leaders! Discover how IEE can help you improve your school and start changing the conversation on education!

Positively Impacting Schools
Meet Oakland International Academy
OIA is a public school academy that opened in 1999 and currently serves over 700 K-12 students. IEE has partnered with OIA since the fall of 2016 and has provided training and coaching around FIM Math, FIM ELA, differentiation, student engagement, and more. The partnership is strong and the focus remains on empowering OIA teachers to help their students meet their full potentials.
The teachers at OIA work hard to provide the best possible learning environment for their students. They focus on the whole child with emphasis on academic and social development. OIA believes that every student, no matter their ethnicity, religious background, or cultural background, deserves a high-quality education tailored to meet their unique individual needs.
“Oakland International Academy is a place I call my second home. I have worked at OIA for 6 years and feel very fortunate to have had such a wonderful experience. I began my teaching career at OIA, and throughout the years, I was provided with extensive trainings and professional developments that have allowed me to be a better teacher. It has been a privilege working with such wonderful administrators and staff members. I’m pleased to be part of the OIA team, where the students’ education always comes first!” – Amal Shohate, ESL Teacher
