COACHING AND TRAINING FOR SCHOOL LEADERS AND TEACHERS
The most important thing that you do as educators is support the academic and social emotional needs of the students you serve. 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!
Upgrading Math Class
Kids are right. Math class is boring. Our weekly blog series will show you how the Focused Instructional Model (FIM) provides teachers and students with a new way of thinking about instruction and learning during math class.
Think outside the box!
Many educators that we support share the desire to visit other classrooms for a creative shift in perspective. We'd like to invite you to think outside the box of PD.
"My Favorite No" Strategy
Confront the most common student errors on work without making anyone feel self-conscience! We want students to feel comfortable making mistakes because they know they can learn from them.
The Chunk and Chew Strategy
This short video entertains an engagement strategy called “Chunk and Chew.” It is a highly effective way in which to support students’ understanding of important concepts.
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
