Textbook/workbooks

I have two books about instructional design and self-regulated learning using brain research, which will be released in May, 2018. The title of one book is: “Setting the Stage: Teaching to the Learner’s Brain using the Learner’s Brain Model. The other book title is: Activating the Learner’s Brain using the Learner’s Brain Model. Both books incorporate brain-based research for lesson design and lesson delivery using the Learner’s Brain Model developed by Dr Barbiere. The focus of these books are instruction which is tailored to the nature of the learner and student self regulation

I also have two field guides that can be used as stand-alone texts or as support for the textbook. The workbooks are: Field Guide for Setting the Stage: Teaching to the Learner’s Brain using the Learner’s Brain Model and Field Guide for Activating the Learner’s Brain using the Learner’s Brain Model. A May release is also planned by Rowman and Littlefield for the field guides.

I.Better Lessons Make Better Brains: Using Brain Research for Lesson Design

II.Empower Not Educe: Using Objectives to Develop Self Regulated Learning

I. Seton Hall University, Academy for Urban Transformation and Institute for International Studies, Leadership Coach, Adjunct Professor, December, 2017 - present

Seton Hall University has a partnership with Jersey City, Perth Amboy, Paterson, Passaic and other districts to provide coaches to mentor principals or to provide professional development. I serve as a Leadership Coach for the Academy for Urban Transformation and International Studies.

III. New Jersey State Department of Education

Regional Executive Director, Comprehensive Support and Improvement Team 3; Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex, Atlantic, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties, April, 2017- December, 2017

New Jersey applied for a waiver under the new Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA) and re-configured the six Regional Achievement Centers (RAC) into four Comprehensive Support and Improvement Teams (CSI). My team’s territory expanded from three counties to seven, as it added four counties in South Jersey. Ninety percent of the schools in the RAC exited status.

Although I was the original Executive Director of RACs, it was recently noted to me that my services were not needed under the new administration.

Executive Director for Regional Achievement Center, Region 5 Monmouth- Ocean – Middlesex Counties July, 2012- March, 2017

I was appointed by the NJ Commissioner of Education to serve as the Executive Director for the New Jersey Department of Education’s Regional Achievement Center (Region #5, covering New Jersey’s Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties), part of a new state structure for educational delivery, encompassing six (6) regional centers statewide. A comprehensive search was done with over 300 applicants considered.

These six Regional Achievement Centers (RACs) served as the hallmark of structural design and education delivery permitting New Jersey to be one of the first states to be fully granted waiver of Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requirements (NCLB/Title I.).

As director, the goal is to “turn around” 33 schools. Within the Region there were three “Priority” schools, defined as being in the bottom 5% of schools statewide in student achievement and thirty (30) “Focus” schools targeted for more focused interventions, due to (a) Highest Within School gaps (general education vs. subgroup), (b) Lowest Subgroup Performance (statewide) or (c) Lowest Graduation Rate (statewide high schools).

My team consisted of State Turnaround Coaches (1) embedded in most challenged priority schools; Culture and Climate (1), Literacy (1), Mathematics (1), Intervention/Special Education or (1) Intervention/LEP (1) and Project Manager (1.)

The first year reported result was that 2 of the 3 Priority Schools made progress and one priority school was flat. Over the four years all schools made progress and two-thirds will be exiting Priority Status. For my focus schools, there are two categories of schools. One group is in the RAC for having a wide achievement gap (more than 43.5%) between the highest and the two lowest. This group is the “achievement gap group.” The other category for focus group classification is two subgroups with a proficiency rate of less than 29.2%.

For the sixteen groups in the “achievement gap” category one school had a decline in test scores while the others showed progress.

Of the 11 schools in the RAC for low subgroup performance, SPED and LEP were the low performing subgroups and those subgroups made gains.

I also have “Critical districts – those districts with a State Monitor which I oversee – Perth Amboy, Asbury Park, Lakewood and New Brunswick.

My evaluation for the past three years has been a rating of 3 (on a three point scale). The first year no evaluation was conducted.

IV. Network Turnaround Officer (NTO) – Newark, NJ

July, 2010 – July 2012

NTO assigned to Central High School and Newark Vocational School in Newark, as part of the School Improvement Grant (SIG), which is part of America’s Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). (Six turnaround officers were hired to oversee 12 of the lowest performing schools as part of a 63M three year grant). The test results after working with the schools for a year were reported.

Newark Vocational High School that had low performing test scores for 9 years, was the fourth lowest performing school in the state. Their scores for the general population were:

Language Arts: 52% to 83% first year.

Math 35% to 34% first year.

Central, the fifth lowest performing school in the state for 8 years, where I conducted monthly workshops, monthly walk throughs, weekly professional development and brain research strategies. This group applied what they learned as the data recorded represents:

Language Arts: 35% to 70% first year, up to 86% the second year

Math 21% to 49% first year, up to 54% the second year
