Areas of Practice

 

I provide organizational, instructional, and operational support, coaching and training to advance your practice and skill as a school leader - whether you're a teacher or a high-ranking district leader.

At LeadingUp, we're not about one-day workshops or boxed trainings. I custom tailor every engagement with clients to ensure they solve the challenges you're facing.  I help you identify and implement meaningful, positive change in your classrooms and beyond.

Projects may include creating a road map for school improvement with a focus on prioritizing goals, communicating to stakeholders, and managing time and resources most effectively while maintaining a focus on student success.

My services also often include direct contact and training with teachers in classroom management, student engagement, differentiated instruction, understanding and using data effectively, and collaborating within and across instructional teams.

I found Crystal to be extremely open to new ideas for increasing parent involvement. Under Crystal’s guidance, the PTA started a monthly Family Night program to bring parents and teachers together to focus on supporting student learning and improve communication between school and home. (The program is still going strong today!) She encouraged teacher participation and was always on hand to welcome parents, discuss their concerns and guide them in advocating for their children.
