The following are some of the professional development (PD) projects and webinars I have recently been actively involved in. Contact me with any questions and to discuss developing PD that meets the needs of your community.
Adult Education, Florida Department of Education
Supporting the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE), Adult Education programs through the Institue for the Professional Development of Adult Educators (IPDAE), we design, build, and deliver high-quality sustained PD courses online for teachers of adult ESOL, as well as administrators of adult education programs in Florida. For more information on these courses and how to register for them, please contact IPDAE.
The Uzbekistan Education for Excellence Program
In a collaborative effort with the Uzbekistan Ministry of Preschool and School Education (MoPSE) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), we worked under the leadership of RTI International and the Learning Systems Institute at Florida State University to develop EFL standards based on the CEFR for Languages, selected and customized EFL textbooks for grades 1-11, and developed and delivered PD materials and training to EFL teachers in Uzbekistan.

English language programs
Through interviewing candidates and preparing project descriptions for the Fellow Program, as well as serving as a contributor to the Online Professional English Network (OPEN) Program, I collaborate with the U.S. Department of State's English Language Programs to place highly qualified TESOL educators on projects around the world to support English language programs and engage in public diplomacy for mutual understanding through cultural exchange.
