One day with Dorina will blow your mind. Here’s why:

Authentic & Real. Dorina is a real teacher who understands the deep challenges ELL and content area teachers of ELL face each day. She provides real, practical solutions that work. To maximize learning, teachers need to be comfortable, and face-to-face with the presenter. Thus, we are very intentional about limiting the number of participants, so that Dorina is easily accessible and has time for every attendee.

Inspiring & Engaging. As a nationally recognized, award-winning thought leader who is a leading authorities on teaching ELL students, Dorina is incredibly inspiring, highly engaging and gives teachers easy-to-implement strategies that can be used the very next day. She’s been called a “Tasmanian devil on a double-espresso,” and is the perfect blend of fun, energy and rigor.

Ongoing & Transformative. Before each in-person day of PD, attendees have the opportunity to meet with Dorina on a live video call, so they know what to expect, and how to best prepare. We also schedule a live video meeting a few days after the event, to answer follow-up questions, share successes and talk through any implementation challenges. We then offer another video call a month later, because real professional learning happens over time.

In addition, attendees are encouraged to contact Dorina any time they need support, for the rest of their careers.

When we say Ongoing & Transformative, we really mean it.

“By FAR the most meaningful and inspirational PD I have ever been to. What a gift you have given us: your heart, your passion, your vulnerability and your humor.”
