Work With Me

Sam Chaltain and Charles HaynesMy passion is helping people reimagine education at the intersection of space, culture and story.

I do this in a few different ways:

School Redesign — With my partners at WONDER, I work with schools around the world to help them reimagine their learning environments in four different ways: spatially, structurally, culturally, and pedagogically.

Strategic Communications – From designing national campaigns to organization-specific messaging platforms, I help businesses and non-profits improve their external and internal communications and build stronger issue and brand awareness.

Strategic Planning – In K-12 schools across the country, I provide leadership development, professional training, and strategic advice about how to create a democratic learning community that creates the optimal learning conditions for students and adults.

Meeting Facilitation — Whether it’s a vital board meeting or an organization-wide strategic planning session, I structure and facilitate essential conversations in order to help groups clarify their next steps moving forward.

Professional Speaking – From keynoting major events to presenting at a private business meeting, I address core issues of democracy, learning and voice. You decide what the goal is and then I work backwards from that to decide what to say and how to say it.

Professional Writing – From curricula to Op-Eds to articles to speeches, I provide original copy that can effectively communicate the core messages of your work and/or organization.

Want to work together? Email me to let me know what it is you want to do – and where it is you need help – and we’ll see where it takes us.
