Coaching for Professional Educators and Students

At the core of Dr. Janelle’s professional expertise lies the field of education. As an experienced educator with over 20+ years spanning K-12, higher education, leadership, cultural studies, and social justice education, she understands the plight of hard-working educators and the complex needs of students across all sectors of education, and student populations. Coaching for professional educators and students, blending positive psychology, contemplative practices and emotional intelligence development offers an array of programs and services to support holistic growth; personal development; healthy work, life, family balance; introspection and reflective practice; and social justice initiatives that will help growth. We specialize in purpose-driven transformations to help clients discover their unique strengths, gifts and passions. Most importantly, we create a reflective space to help you align your personal life-calling and career aspirations, and learn how to integrate your gifts and passions into your work and daily life.

Coaching for Professional Educators and Students: K-12, Undergraduate, and Graduate Students

Individual and Group Coaching for professional educators and students develops personal skills such as developing more direct, focused, attainable goals; building resilience and confidence; creating a habit of mind for open-mindedness, curiosity, and confidence; developing creative problem-solving; and dimensions of teaching, learning and knowing.

Academic Coaching for students is one of the best ways to personalize your educational journey and get on track academically. Dr. Janelle has expertise in teaching, learning assistance, academic advising, and academic and student affairs. We focus on how to integrate academic skills, executive skills, performance-based skills and daily living to improve academic success. We blend holistic-based, transformational coaching and academic support to help clients create innovative strategies to study smarter, manage time better, prepare for test, and design learning strategies. Academic coaching is available for K-12, undergraduate and graduate students and is generalized for all subject-areas.

Mentoring Partnerships for professional educators and students are perfect when our clients need a purposeful and personal relationship where an experienced professional can provide guidance, feedback and wisdom to facilitate overall personal and professional growth and development. Dr. Janelle defines mentoring as a developmental relationship, based on collaborative partnerships, and critical dialogue. Her goal is to advance her mentees toward self-reflection, self-development and action. Mentoring relationships are excellent for transitional experiences such as high school to college transitions, college to career transitions, job changes, exploration of identity, dealing with work challenges or new responsibilities, or simply to strengthen your emotional intelligence.

The Process

How Will We Meet?

Either as a group or individually, our coaching services for professional educators and students are held either online or in person. Prior to the first session, Dr. Janelle will have a consultation with you or your group representative to better understand your mission, vision, goals, and dynamics. This will help her better understand any specific needs, and special accommodations to ensure universal design is accomplished.

As we enter a new time and space, we have the opportunity to learn in a new way. For now, all of our services will be held online and that means you can join us from wherever you are. Online group meetings will meet through Zoom.

How Long Will We Work Together?

The benefits of coaching are incredible. Our coaching services improve capacity to:

  • Promote systems and strategic thinking.
  • Strengthen individual confidence and build team morale.
  • Improve communication and inter-group relationships and dynamics.
  • Support work, family, life healthy balance.

In order to make this experience as valuable as possible, we highly recommend a minimum coaching period of three months for all clients. Additionally, six to twelve months is the most effective approach to establishing longer-term support as you make major transitions in your personal and professional life. After the initial period, you may extend as long and as often as you like. My clients often stay with me long past our initial coaching period.

Preferred Client Status

For Individuals: To fully meet your needs, we recommend multiple sessions. Services fill quickly and there is often a waiting list for new clients. If after your first contract is complete and you decide to renew your sessions, we will do our best to accommodate your request by giving you “preferred client” status on the waiting list.

For Groups: To meet the needs of all group participants and truly accomplish group goals, most organizations request long-term or multiple group sessions. Therefore, my group services fill quickly and there is often a waiting list for new clients. If after your first group contract is complete and your organization decides to renew group services, we will do our best to accommodate your request by giving you “preferred client” status on the waiting list.

Extra Time

For Individuals: If you are doing individual coaching, this applies to you as well. I have time between our regular sessions, and enjoy providing this extra level of service. I do not bill for this type of additional time, I only request that we keep extra calls to 5- to 10-minutes each.

For Groups: If your coaching program is a group program, your group representative or group participants are more than welcome to call or email Dr. Janelle between group sessions if you cannot wait to share a success, need advice, have a challenge, or just want to check in.
