Συνοδία (sunodia) is an ancient Greek word that describes a journey that one takes with companions.  My goal in working with educators is to foster growth and innovation in the areas of instructional practice and curriculum development by offering meaningful learning opportunities and sustained support during implementation.

 

About Me

A passion for teaching and supporting teachers.

I am a veteran educator with over fifteen years of experience in both teaching and teacher leadership in K-12 schools.  I am committed to partnering with teachers in their professional growth to create a plan that is truly individualized and tailored to each teachers needs.  I have a wealth of valuable experience working with teachers in all stages of their careers.  In my own teaching, I use my strong foundation in backward curricular planning and cooperative learning to design creative and engaging lessons.

As a teacher, I’ve enjoyed developing lessons that incorporate technology in a meaningful way.  I love helping teachers see the many ways that technology can benefit our students. My technology trainings are designed to provide plenty of opportunities for teachers to have hands-on practice time so that they feel confident using the tools that they will teach with.

I founded Sunodia Educational Consulting to share my passion for teaching with my fellow educators by providing creative, tailored, and patient professional development services.  I earned my teaching credential from Santa Clara University, my master’s degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and my bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Testimonials

I have taken two technology workshops with Lynne (a few years apart). Each workshop was eye-opening! The first workshop introduced me to using technology in my classroom (I was very green!). The second workshop helped me step outside my comfort zone to increase my technology use. Lynne introduced tools that I was not familiar with. She gave us ideas on using the tools in each of our disciplines and offered us time to practice. She was available throughout the workshop to assist us when we had trouble. My favorite learning tools from the workshop are Wizer.me, GoFormative, and FlipGrid. I think they will help me better reach my students

Lynne is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, observant, and encouraging teaching coach.  Her professional and non-judgmental communication immediately made me feel safe and encouraged.  She helped me identify my strengths and also the directions I can continue to pursue. Lynne’s coaching is not for just fixing short-term issues, but for a long term professional growth.  I walked away with many useful resources, confidence, and enthusiasm.
