What is most important in our leadership? Leadership is service oriented and based in our identities as leaders, educators, and individuals. Join us in the exploration of the PEBC Leadership Framework and your own authentic application of the strands of purpose, culture, instruction, and systems.  Strengthen your leadership team and join a larger community of school leaders who are dedicated to developing systems and structures that foster agency, equity, and understanding for students, staff, and community members. 

Leadership teams will participate in a series of four half-day sessions in order to pause, come together in a time and space, and engage in renewal, new learning, and application. 

Schools and systems are invited to send Leadership Teams composed of 3-6 people who represent administration (principals & deans), professional learning (instructional coaches & facilitators), and teaching (instructional leaders).  The seminars are cumulative. Therefore, it will be most effective to have the same participants attend all four sessions.

Learning Structures & Outcomes:

  • Participate in a space of renewal and restoration as an individual and a community of school leaders to strengthen our leadership impact.
  • Develop a strong leadership team that can navigate today’s constant changing landscape.
  • Explore the PEBC Leadership Framework and apply your learning to your school:
    • Purpose: Galvanize stakeholders toward agency, equity and understanding for all. 
    • Culture: Facilitate a healthy, effective, collaborative community of learners. 
    • Instruction: Prioritize practices that foster agency, understanding, and equity for all. 
    • Systems: Design and lead sustainable systems aligned to vision.


  • Certificate of attendance for CDE credit

Brooke O’Drobinak, M.A., believes that people and relationships are at the heart of school communities. Her work focuses on issues pertinent to successful K-12 education, including leadership, school culture, professional learning, and overall wellbeing. She believes that cultivating conditions under which adults in school communities can meaningfully focus on students--both as scholars and people--is essential to the task of school leadership.

She is the co-author of the book Teaching, Learning, and Trauma (6-12): Responsive Practices for Holding Steady in Turbulent Times (Corwin, 2020).  This body of work defines an integrated and comprehensive approach to student learning by weaving together effective practices in mental health along with those in the teaching and learning. 

Most recently, Brooke has served in district administration in Aurora Public Schools. Prior, she served in school administration for 13 years at a high functioning, urban Denver high school. She has been a classroom teacher, district staff developer, PEBC coach, university educator (DU and Regis University), senior state department consultant and school design consultant. 

She earned her BA in Economics and English and a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Arizona, Post-Secondary Degree in Spanish Language and Culture from the Universidad de Sevilla and her MA in Curriculum Leadership from the University of Denver.

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.
