Teaching with Presence Intensive
Develop powerful presence with students, peers, and parents. Designed for early career teachers in groups of 8-10, Teaching with Presence Intensive is a year-long, cohort-based program that supports teachers both in the classroom and in the adult community of their school. Starting with a 2-day summer program, TWPI meets multiple times; the cohort offers support and community at key moments during the year and builds strong bonds between participants. Participants also build skills for continuous improvement through peer coaching. They develop a strong and authentic presence with students, increase their spontaneity and expressiveness, and leverage the power of theatre and storytelling to bring lessons to life. With the adult community, teachers learn skills for partnering with parents, developing trusting peer relationships, and giving and receiving coaching and feedback.
