In this institute you will learn a collaborative and inquiry-based approach to professional communication which focuses on supporting colleagues’ thinking around planning, reflecting and problem-solving. You will learn how to refine your language to support novice to experienced teachers using coaching, collaborating, calibrating, and consulting that best fits the situation. This flexible structure allows you to mentor or coach a colleague by offering support, creating challenge, and facilitating professional vision, which leads to increased independence and confidence among teachers to support student learning.

Meet the Facilitators

Klaus-Quinlan joined PEBC in 2003, and works with K-12 educators across the content areas, in Colorado and nationally. She supports teachers, teams, schools, and districts through coaching, facilitation, and leading professional learning. She co-facilitates the Math Institute, Foundations of Numeracy Institute, and Effective Mentoring Institute. She has worked extensively with the Boettcher Teacher Residency program as an adjunct professor, clinical supervisor, and coordinator during the expansion to Colorado’s rural San Luis Valley.
She brings her experience as an educator teaching elementary and middle school, as well as serving as a reading specialist, ELL coordinator, mentor teacher and instructional coach. She earned National Board Certification in Early Adolescent English/Language Arts. She earned a Master’s degree in K-12 Literacy from California State University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Brown University.

As a staff developer, Emma brings a deep passion for culturally responsive and relevant pedagogy along with over a decade of experience as a teacher, instructional coach, curriculum writer, and facilitator to her work in schools. A strong advocate of data-driven, inquiry-based instruction, she believes that all children are capable of meeting rigorous goals in the classroom, especially when their identities, interests, and cultural backgrounds are intentionally integrated and elevated. Her mission is to help spread effective coaching and instructional practices to school leaders and educators and to help design efficient and sustainable structures to make teaching a life-long career.

Emma holds an MA in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education and a BA in Social & Cultural Analysis from New York University. She loves to bake, play volleyball, and spend time outdoors with her husband, daughter and dog.
