A.B.E.L. (Administrators Becoming Effective Leaders)

We aim to build capacity in educators, school leaders, and aspiring leaders through intentional professional learning communities designed as spaces for introspection and the cultivation of new habits, understandings, and practices. We create holding spaces in which participants are invited to show up as their full selves, and be fully heard and seen. This experience will nourish each educator, so that they return to their classroom or office able to pour into their students’ lives from a full cup.


This offering includes a series of workshops and/or ongoing coaching sessions. The workshop topics listed below are available as single sessions, in which you may select as many as you like to create the series. We also offer deeper dives, and one topic can be more thoroughly explored over the course of the sessions. As we discover your school’s needs, we partner with you to customize your participants’ learning experience.
