Complexity Support in Your Context

Teaching can be wonderful. Rewarding, challenging and enjoyable.

And, teaching can be hard.

We work in complex settings, with large groups of human beings, who are all unique and complex in their own way. Busy, complex humans who all need a little piece of us at the same time. It is no surprise that sometimes, we find it impossible to step back and see what is really going on in our learning spaces.

Wouldn’t it be great if, amid all this, we had an experienced, supportive colleague who we could call upon to observe the complexity and help us to find our way through it.

At Lisa Burman Consultants, we can be that colleague. Whether it is one child’s strengths and needs that you are struggling to understand, or a dynamic between children or elements which is proving to be more of a challenge than an opportunity.

We can spend time (usually half a day) observing, hypothesizing, trying out strategies and making recommendations which might just help everyone in your setting move forward. We call this particular “pedagogical consultancy” work… Complexity Support in Your Context.

“During her visit, Amanda noticed things about our children that we couldn’t see and gave us strategies that supported our whole group to be successful at preschool.

I didn’t achieve the outcome I thought I was looking for by having Amanda come in, but as an educator I now have the tools to watch children and research them. My understanding of children’s body language, what they are saying with their shoulders etc and where they choose to position themselves has helped me see so much about my new children, even though I’ve only had them for 2 days.”

Rose Snook, Preschool Leader
