Please take a moment to tell us about your recent experience with the Patterns of Power Consultant Team: 

  • "Fantastic! Informative! Streamlined! One of the best [professional development sessions] I have done in a long time!"  -Gina G., Teacher

  • "Whitney is highly a skilled teacher! We were witness to that when she worked with us on our campus with our students and staff. She modeled lessons, debriefed with us and shared with us how we could think differently around writing and patterns. She was the ‘right messenger’ for moving us forward and take chances. Thank you, Whitney!!!! You inspired us!!!!"

      - Kathy S, Principal

  • Holly Durham did a great job of presenting to our 300 HS English teachers. We were thrilled to be able to put a copy of Patterns of Power for HS in every teacher's hand at the beginning of the year, but seeing Holly's workshop on implementation took our understanding to the next level. It was a wonderful afternoon of learning, and we're already seeing benefits in classrooms across the district!  -Tracy W., Curriculum Coordinator

  • Our district has been working with Whitney La Rocca for the past 3 years. We have seen tremendous growth in our reading and writing instruction. Teachers have a stronger understanding of balanced literacy using authentic reading and writing instruction. The literacy growth is quantifiable through multiple data points. Whitney LaRocca provides "next steps" to increase student achievement in a positive, growth mindset way.    -Roxie A., Curriculum Coordinator
