Client Testimonials

“Dr. Kirchner is an incredible educational consultant and one of the best presenters I have ever seen. She delivers a message based not only in theory but in years of working ‘in the trenches’ with teachers. She has an innate way of working alongside teachers, and the buy-in she gets from teachers is amazing.” 

“Saturday was such a wonderful success, not only for the students with their classes, but also for the parents and educators who 'soaked up' your information and strategies that they could take home and back to their schools to implement immediately!”

"The PD that Jana facilitated was AMAZING! I was a teacher participant in a Teaching American History grant with her and learned so much from her during that time frame. Every time I attend her PDs, I am so motivated and inspired to go back and immediately implement the strategies she shared. The information she shared will have such a great impact on my students."

"I appreciated your session on coaching today in the CIA (Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment) Team meeting. I really think some of us had some 'ah ha' moments. Thanks for making us think and grow as educators!"

"Jana’s activities worked perfectly with the museum exhibit…and I had a teacher tell me on the way out it was the best PD she’s ever been to and how excited she was to use all of the activities in the classroom."

“The instructional strategies and additional reading resources Jana was able to provide our History Department teachers have allowed our teachers to take their teaching to the next level. They have also become more intentional with aligning their strategies with the content they teach to the students. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to work with Jana.”
“Jana is a fantastic facilitator who gives practical, easy-to-use strategies that can immediately be implemented in the classroom. I’ve had several teachers say her PDs are the best they’ve ever attended. But what I love most about Jana is that she is approachable. She creates a safe space in her PDs where there are no stupid questions and good ideas are freely shared by all. She empowers us all to go forth and conquer the world of inquiry learning! 
“For the past two years, Dr. Kirchner has trained our sixth through twelfth grade Social Studies teacher leaders, who then redeliver the training to all 6-12 Social Studies in the district. Not only has she been wonderful to work with, the activities and materials she prepared helped our teachers dig into the TN State Standards and create aligned, rigorous tasks to meet the individual needs of their students.”
