Michelle Morris Jones supports teachers, leaders, and systems to create professional learning opportunities that promote agency, ensure equity, and foster understanding for each and every learner.  She believes that learners deserve to experience learning opportunities that provide intellectual bite while being meaningful, asset-based, and culturally sustaining.

As the Director of Professional Learning Design, Michelle supports action planning, course development, institute design, and publications that lead to learner inspiration and innovation. She co-facilitates the Thinking Strategies Institute, Making the Workshop Work, Impact Facilitation and teaches a handful of online courses related to the PEBC Teaching Framework.  When she’s not working with teammates or clients she is producing PEBC’s Phenomenal Teaching Podcast which strives to share the stories of how teachers, leaders, and authors are teaching for agency, equity and understanding. Michelle is committed to expanding her understanding of culturally sustaining and responsive pedagogy and bringing others into this important conversation.

She received her degree in Communication Disorders & Speech Science along with an Elementary Education Certification from CU Boulder. After teaching in a variety of urban settings Michelle earned a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction: Literacy, Language and Culture from CU Denver which elevated her understanding of the importance of creating equitable systems and structures for students and teachers so that everyone has access to high quality learning opportunities.

In her spare time Michelle and her husband enjoy spending time with their young adult and teenage children, sports, gardening, and reading great books.
