WE HELP SCHOOLS AND DISTRICTS DESIGN, IMPLEMENT, AND EVALUATE INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL SOLUTIONS THAT OPTIMIZE OUTCOMES FOR STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND FAMILIES.

Hawthorne Education provides a range of consulting, professional development, and support services to the schools and districts that are leading educational innovation. Our services start with a thorough discovery process to help educators choose the right educational innovation to maximize learning outcomes for their student populations.  We have extensive experience with online, blended learning, project-based learning, and other technology-rich education models. Our goal is to help leaders build the capacity within their schools and districts to continue to enhance the innovation that we start during our collaboration period.

Our projects focus on building relationships with educators to enable change. We are not a “one and done” shop that does a presentation and leaves districts to figure out the rest. Instead, our approach is highly personalized. We take the time to learn about our individual clients and help identify, implement, and refine solutions that stick. Our projects fall into three categories, planning, implementing, and evaluation.

All of our projects are led or closely monitored by Stacy Hawthorne, but we rely on a network of experienced educators across the U.S. to add value and provide services in individual schools.

“One of the key components vital to our nation’s much needed educational reset is the importance of teacher voice. Stacy Hawthorne realizes that the instructional opportunities in our schools are leveraged by supporting these in-house experts. Hawthorne draws on her expertise in educational technology to engage students, families, and educators in building engaging learning processes. Stacy Hawthorne’s methods show meaningful growth in both students and educators which is what we need in schools today. ”
