Dr. Shayna Cooke
Bio: I currently serve as the Head of the Educator Development division with the World Leadership School. I am responsible for cultivating a rich environment for faculty development throughout World Leadership School's network of independent and charter schools. In doing so, I work to link faculty teaching excellence to student success, advance the scholarship of teaching and learning and evidence-based instructional practices, and advocate for teaching and learning environments that maximize opportunities for all students and faculty to be successful. With over 17 years of experience in the field of education, my professional interest focuses on bringing purpose to learning. The purpose of this site is to be a collection of lesson plans, Project Based Learning ideas, thoughts on global education, Leadership development, teaching and developing the whole child rather than just pieces of them, and a sounding board for discussions revolving around pedagogy. I would love for this to be an interactive medium so please post your comments so that the conversations can grow into something meaningful.
