Professional Learning

Understanding and Meeting Students’ Needs

The key to success looks different for everyone. In order to meet students where they are and to reach every student’s learning needs, we provide personal learning plans (PLPs) for everyone which may include accommodations and/or modifications. A modification changes WHAT a student is being taught, while an accommodation changes HOW a student learns a skill to provide greater access, which can include how instructions are given, the materials students use, what testing looks like, and other supports provided by the teacher.

Professional Learning

SEL Advisory Facilitation

Advisory is the heart of a great school. When implemented well, it generates trust and engagement, offers unconditional belonging, and becomes the ideal place to develop social-emotional intelligence. SEL Advisory Facilitation is a certification program for educators serving middle or high school, enabling them to lead advisory groups which offer deep social and emotional learning.

Our immersive program includes in-person training, implementation coaching, and an invitation to be part of an ongoing community of practice.

Professional Learning


At WMS, a co-teaching team consists of a core content teacher and a learning specialist- the most effective team will allow both parties to bring their strengths, and balance each other out. The end goal is always to make a stronger and more effective educational experience for students. Learning specialists support all 3 grades in their content area, either humanities or STEM, and rotate between helping each class.
