She also provides teachers with resources and ideas to implement immediately into their classrooms.  Our teachers are always excited to hear that Jackie is coming back for another professional development session!"

Alyssa Neidhardt, Director of K-3 Programs, iLearn Charter Schools

"Jackie Frangis has facilitated several workshops to secondary teachers in our district, ranging from "The Art of Oral Debate" to "Zooming in on Close Reading."  Teachers were highly engaged in the activities and discussions, and were thrilled with all the resources Jackie provided. Jackie also provided opportunities for teachers to reflect on how the strategies and protocols she presented could be implemented in their classrooms. I'm looking forward to having Jackie return to our district."

Francesca Miraglia, Curriculum Supervisor of Secondary English, Hamilton, NJ

"Jackie is a dynamic, highly engaging presenter who provides a focused, high-energy workshop that offers a wealth of information and resources. She demonstrates effective teaching strategies at all grade levels and delivers immediate feedback that supports results. Jackie’s drive and motivation are contagious, bringing an increased level of confidence to educators.”

Transfiguration Academy – Donna Chimenti – Elementary Teacher

"We were exploring close reading on our own as middle school teachers and not getting what we wanted. Jackie opened our eyes to new insights and gave us pathways of information to further our own development of the skill to use with our students."

Visitation Academy – Laura Flager – 8th Grade ELA Teacher

"Jackie's workshop on close reading enabled my faculty to get hands-on ideas that they utilized immediately in their classroom. These close reading skills challenge students to become stronger readers and writers and improve overall reading comprehension."

This workshop did a great job of providing actionable concepts of Instructional Rounds in a way that fostered effective application. We are already planning to turn-key the information that we learned, because Ms. Frangis’s presentation was comprehensive, organized and engaging…In an amazingly short period and for a small investment you walk away with ideas on how to structure Instructional Rounds, develop Problems of Practice, and ultimately improve instruction and student achievement.

Lisa Klein and Madalena Zak, Supervisors of Curriculum & Instruction, Lyndhurst School District

Having the opportunity to be a participant in Jackie Frangis’s Instructional Rounds professional development sessions was inspiring and immediately applicable for me as an educator… I found Jackie very knowledgeable and she provided excellent anecdotal examples from her years of experience.  Jackie also incorporated relevant, effective, and humorous video highlights which bolstered her lesson.
