Have the unprecedented challenges of this past school year thrown off your instructional calendar? Implementers across the country have told us that the planning adjustments required by remote or hybrid learning, social distancing and other health measures, and weather events are integral to their pacing expectations. We responded by pulling together some great advice for you. In this video, you’ll hear a group of veteran implementers and members of the PhD Science® Implementation Success Team share ideas for modifying and customizing instruction to alleviate pacing stress as we prepare to end the school year on a high note.
Prior to joining Great Minds, Tori Soileau was an elementary school classroom teacher in Louisiana public schools. In her last year teaching in the classroom, Tori had the opportunity to pilot PhD Science in her third-grade classroom. Tori’s classroom transformed during the pilot, and students grew in ways that she could not have imagined because of PhD Science. That spring, Tori joined the team as a summer associate to spread her knowledge and passion with other educators through professional development. Tori officially joined Great Minds as a full-time member in May 2019, now serving as the regional director of implementation support. Tori is passionate about supporting districts for a successful implementation, finding solutions for teachers, and helping all students realize they are capable of greatness. She lives in Baton Rouge.
