“Lisa’s work is a game changer for us in our district. While the concept of Differentiation is certainly not new in education, Lisa’s ideas of how to incorporate it into classrooms that are now filled with diverse learning styles is new. Lisa’s work with us is making us think and talk in different ways. I can’t wait to see the shift in our district over time as we continue working with her.”

"Targeted, adaptive, personalized, and immediately impactful. Those are the things that first come to mind when I think about the professional development experience Lisa Westman provided for our district."

"Lisa, thank you for your very enlightening deep-dive session at the ECIS Student Support Conference two weeks ago. Through it, I gained a much deeper understanding of how differentiation can be efficient and truly tailored to individual students’ needs without being (overly!) time-consuming.
I particularly appreciated that the practical approach you present is immediately and easily applicable in class. I also love the way focusing on learning intentions and success criteria gives students choice as to how they can show and share their learning and how much more engaged they become once the real-world applications of skills developed in class are made clearer.
Many thanks, again!"

"Lisa will really take the time with you to figure out what ways will work best for your classroom. My first thought was “this is going to take a lot of work” and was a bit overwhelming, but Lisa showed me how to start small and just manipulate what I’m already doing into a differentiated method. I have already seen some big changes with my students in the small amount of time that I have been implementing these strategies."
