Why two trainers?

  • A sound educational program in K-12, vertically aligns skills retaught with consultant / teacher coaching. 
  • MJ, Etc. offers a unique approach of being able to target more teachers and students concurrently. 
  • MJ, Etc. can divide and conquer with one consultant working with elementary and another with secondary teachers and students. 
  • Training and follow-up in the classroom will be effective with teachers and students applying the strategies while consultants model or coach.
  • MJ, Etc. offers training for teachers with one consultant while another is working with administrators to ensure a smooth flow of successful implementation for students.
  • MJ, Etc. combines administrative perspective with expertise of educators who have been national speakers and presenters for over a decade.

Teaching creates all other professions.
