"DJ's" Workshops - Educational Leadership Consulting, LLC

Brown Bag Workshop - For Principals and Assistant Principals: 3 years Experience or More!

What is a "Brown Bag" Workshop?

Principals and Assistant Principals are busy and sometimes too busy to leave campus to attend a full day of professional development. Can you spend 4 hours learning strategies and tips on 2 focused and relevant topics?

Bring your “bag breakfast or lunch” and be prepared for a fast-paced “tune-up” of your current leadership knowledge, skills, and practices on selected topics.

Instructional Leadership vs. Student Discipline

You will participate in a 4-hour workshop focused on two critical areas of a school leaders’ day: Instructional Leadership and Student Discipline. Participants will be given research-based strategies and tips that will improve teacher and student performance and help you prioritize the events of your day! You can reduce office referrals!
