Pulsing Word consultants follow an observation-based model for providing support to individuals and organizations. After discussing goals and challenges, we will come and observe you in any setting that will be beneficial: in a classroom, working one on one with a child, or with families. We will then customize a set of trainings to support what IS thriving, and to address challenges that we observe. New tools and new methods are crafted together with staff in these trainings to ensure their success and to maximize the knowledge that you hold. If appropriate, we then come in to model the new tools and/or do follow up observations and supervision with individuals or the staff at large.

Keynote Speaking Arraignments
Your workshop combined valuable information with fun. Some of the participants may have started out slightly reticent, but the movement activities drew everyone in immediately, creating an environment that strengthened the group dynamic. You combine learning with creative exploration and community building. Everyone loved it!
Children's Book Project
We are excited to be partnering with Pulsing Word to increase the literacy support our parents provide their children at Marshall Elementary. Their family literacy workshop series, “Sopa de Letras,” is thoughtful and engaging–with strong emphasis on participation and hands-on activities–and they have been very open to working with us to customize the workshops according to our needs.
From the overwhelming positive feedback we received from staff, the school administration, and most importantly parents themselves, we have asked them to come back and expand the Sopa de Letras series this year. As an administrator, I have also been impressed with the level of professionalism and adaptability Pulsing Word has demonstrated as we integrated their efforts into our school contracts.
