I love teachers! I've wanted to be a teacher since I was in sixth grade. Becoming a teacher made me love them even more. My colleagues were passionate, caring, and helpful. They were hard workers with very full plates. I'm on a mission to do whatever I can to help teachers be their best. Their time is valuable, so I want the time spent with me to be purposeful and fun.
Provide content that can be immediately applicable. You can attend a Learning in Hand HQ workshop and get started using what you learned right away.
Hands on. You won't just sit in your seat taking notes. I like to model sample activities while you play the role of an actively learning student.
Bring Your Own Device. When teachers use their own technology, they know that what they learned can be done with what they have.
Comfortable atmosphere. You're my guest and I'll do everything I can to make sure you are comfortable. Learning in Hand HQ has a large professional learning space with a fireplace, tables, and couches. When not used for learning, this space is my family room.
Food and drinks are important. You shouldn't be hungry or thirsty when you're trying to learn. Learning in Hand HQ has a refrigerator stocked with water and soft drinks. It also has coffee and snacks (including chocolate). Lunch is catered so that we can make the most of our time together.
Never more than 12 in a class. Class size is important. I want to be able to answer all questions and give personalized help. That's why you won't be in a class with more than 11 other people.
Wi-Fi and power are essential. It's happened too many times: a venue doesn't have sufficient Wi-Fi and there are no available power outlets. We have great Wi-Fi at HQ, and provide plenty of power and USB outlets at each workspace.
Takeaway resources are provided. It's handy to have resources from your workshop for later reference. That's why I provide digital resources for every workshop. Each participant gets a sticker with a web link and QR code so they can easily access the resources.
You should know that Learning in Hand HQ's learning space is only accessible by going down stairs. Please contact Tony if this might be an issue. Also, it might be important for you to know that two cats live in Learning in Hand HQ.
