Our consultation and training services are grounded in Cooke’s mission and core belief to share our knowledge with other professionals and schools to improve the educational experience for all children. For nearly a decade, Cooke Center Institute’s consultation and training team of talented instructional consultants have cultivated individualized collaborations with partner school faculty, and base consultation plans on the unique needs of each local school community, rather than trying to impose a standardized plan.
The following represents a sample of consultation and training services Cooke provides to partner school teachers and administrators.
