Dr. Vicki Gibson, Ph.D.
“Years of training educators has convinced me that the conference approach for professional development generates ideas but does not appear to significantly impact practice or student outcomes. I find it unfortunate that educators do not receive intensive training to develop their trade like other professionals. My friend and colleague Jan Hasbrouck and I have organized Gibson Hasbrouck & Associates to collaborate with other experts and provide research-based, skills-focused professional development that helps educators improve practice and increase student achievement.”
