FuelEd Schools

Category : Uncategorized

No, that is not a type-o.

That is the name of an exciting organization that, like TeacherCentricity, is dedicated to the social-emotional needs of educators.

I am so excited to have found others that see things as I do!

The mighty forces at FuelEd Schools believe that a teacher’s ability to build relationships with students, parents, and colleagues is the critical component to a teacher’s effectiveness and student achievement.

The research-based programs offered by FueledSchools empower teachers to build deeper and more meaningful relationships with all of the players in the learning environment. As a result of the positive relationships, teacher turn-over can be reduced while student achievement improves.

FuelEd Schools offers individual, small group, and workshop style sessions all of which are informed by research from the fields of social neuroscience, developmental psychology, and counseling psychology.

Teacher Effectiveness is Dependent

Category : Uncategorized

In the world of sales, Boris Groysberg’s research supports the notion that “star talent” is not very mobile. The same may be considered in the world of teaching. Highly effective teaching methods and attitudes can be specific to a grade level or subject area. The methods a teacher uses may also be influenced by the district, school, and grade-level/department cultures. A one-size-fits-all pedagogical skill set seldom works across environments. A teacher’s methods, although highly effective in a previously taught grade-level, may not be as effective in a new position, school, or district. Districts, schools, grade-levels/departments, and individual teachers need to understand which methods and attitudes are most important to the particular grade/subject and culture to which each teacher is assigned. Differentiation applies to grown-ups, too.
