I founded TGS Educational Consulting in March of 2020 because I wanted to spend my days doing what I love:
- Learning as much as I can
- Helping others learn and grow
I earned my Masters and Doctorate degrees in Educational Leadership from Loyola University Chicago. I currently live in Tucson, Arizona.
When I’m not keeping busy helping my clients increase the good they do (and to do it justly and equitably), you can find me reading, playing with my three kids, or zoning out to Netflix. I’m also a fan of hanging out with my chickens and going for long walks with my dog Orzo.
Your work matters. Do it the best you can.
You and the school, nonprofit, or government agency you work for exist to help others. And, you are constantly working to achieve the outcomes your community deserves. TGS Educational Consulting can accelerate progress through several tailored service offerings.
Since the beginning, the heart of TGS Educational Consulting’s work has been outstanding training for schools, nonprofits, and government agencies. Our most requested training topics include:
- Positive Behavior Interventions and Support
- Social and Emotional Learning
- Self-care and Wellness
- Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth
- Effective environments for students with ADHD
- “School-Possible” models for Professional Learning Communities
If your organization wants to offer outstanding professional learning options for your team, TGS Educational Consulting can transform your vision into unforgettable resources and experiences that will be yours for as long as you want. What do you and your team want to learn? Click here to schedule a free consultation and let us know.
Beyond initial training, TGS Educational Consulting also supports schools, nonprofits, and government agencies through technical assistance. Technical assistance allows for ongoing support between trainings and helps teams build sustainable systems. Often, technical assistance involves:
- Data analysis
- Team skill-building
- Program evaluation
- Resource development
Yes, you can do all of this yourself. However, in our experience, leaders who make use of effective technical assistance spend less time in spreadsheets and more time leading. Let us help.
Sharing the work you do can accelerate your team’s progress and elevate what you are able to offer to those you serve. For example, The IDEA School in Tucson, Arizona works extensively with our team to create unbelievable social media posts that have dramatically expanded their reach. Social media can share success, thank supporters, and recruit new students or clients.
Social media support typically involves:
- Creating and updating your content calendar
- Co-creating text for social media posts
- Selecting images and/or creating graphics that match your message
- Scheduling posts one to two weeks in advance
While social media is an important tool, it’s possible you’d rather serve students, families, and staff than manage a Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat account. We can help for far less than you will spend hiring a part-time social media coordinator. Schedule a free call and we can share more.
All organizations have protocols for creating job descriptions and posting openings. However, most schools, nonprofits, and government agencies stop there.
TGS Educational Consulting helps fill openings by actively recruiting within your network and our network to find outstanding candidates who may not know yet that they’re ready to look at a new position. We send you pre-screened candidates along with any requested application materials, greatly increasing the number and quality of candidates you have to choose from.
What makes our recruitment services different than online job postings is that we don’t send you hundreds of applications, all of widely-ranging quality. Instead, we work with you to get a strong understanding of your ideal candidate, find those people, and bring them to you. If you are hiring new teachers, staff, or leaders, you may be experiencing the same level of candidate quality as other organizations. It may be time to schedule a free call and consider a different approach.
When our team works with Tim, the pressure melts away. We focus on the real work we need to accomplish, knowing that Tim’s not just there to clock in for the meeting. He’s there to help us succeed.”
