TESTIMONIALS

topquote

Josie helped me narrow in on my goals and helped me to simplify what I expected of myself so that it was manageable. I'm walking away with a road map for moving forward and more clearly defined goals. She helped me see the ways that I can find joy in my work while also accomplishing big things. I left every session feeling motivated and capable!

We don’t often make time or space for veteran teachers to work with a mentor, and it was so refreshing, empowering, and illuminating to have Liza as a thought partner. She helped me de-center myself from the classroom and curriculum, and to make it more focused on the skills of having challenging conversation. The experience of the class improved dramatically, and I know that I couldn’t have done it without Liza’s support and wisdom. I am so grateful for the chance to have worked with her.

CATDC adds such value in connecting member schools with creative, professional consultants who have been vetted by the CATDC team and, often, other member schools. Time is the most precious resource we have as a faculty, and so having an outstanding person to lead professional development makes such a difference. We are pleased with this new venture of the Collaborative and look forward to continuing to connect with great trainers in the future.

–Joe Harvey, Head of School, Mark Day School

Through Rebecca’s coaching, I not only gained perspectives on how to navigate through my current situations but also build the inner resources and capacity necessary for long-term success. She helped me face down any imposter syndrome that crept up operating through COVID, created a brave space for my wishes and fears, and helped me refine my purpose-driven out-of-school time work.
