Student-Centered World was born out of one thought:
We keep being told our classrooms should be student-centered, but nothing out there tells us how to do it.
Isn’t that the Catch 22 in teaching? It seems school districts want to jump on the newest educational bandwagon (oftentimes, it is rightfully so), but how many really provide the training on how to do it properly?
If you are hoping to have a successful student-centered classroom, implement successful methods immediately, and not fail at a new method in the classroom then we can definitely help you.
We are pioneers in the field of student-centered HELP! There is SO MUCH out there about the positive effects of the student-centered model, but there is NOTHING that actually explains how to do it. In 2018, we decided to change that.
It took FIVE YEARS of trial and error to finally find a student-centered model that consistently worked. No teacher should have to take that much time to figure out this method, but there is NOTHING out there that walks you through the process; thus, Student-Centered World was born.
Every single in-person workshop that we’ve held has been packed with teachers who want to learn and leave finally feeling empowered to make the change. Our online course has left countless teachers with the “ah-ha” moments they have been searching for. Most PD sessions leave you feeling inspired, but don’t give you the tools to make the changes immediately. WE DO.
Most teachers want to move to a student-centered model, but HOW? Most of what you need is help, instruction, and encouragement from a team who has “been there and done that!” This is why we created a step-by-step guide to creating a student-centered environment (that works every time!) to help as many educators as possible!
We will definitely help you have a successful student-centered classroom, implement learner-centered methods immediately, and not fail at a new method in the classroom!
Jenn Breisacher started her teaching journey in 2007. She graduated Cum Laude with her BA from Monmouth University with dual majors in both
History and Education. Throughout her tenure of teaching, she taught in both an affluent, academically charged district and also a Title I, technical CTE school.
Through her own research and both trial and (lots of) error, she was able to make the transition from a 100% teacher-led classroom to a 100% student-led one, with her final years encompassing a blended learning model (including teaching a course that was fully hybrid).
While managing this, Jenn also started a family and received her Master of Science degree in Public Service Leadership from Capella University.
After falling in love with giving workshops to other teachers and finding it her calling to help students outside of the walls of her own classroom, Jenn founded Student-Centered World in 2018 with the goal to help every teacher create a fully engaged classroom, in turn reducing teacher stress, reclaiming teacher time, and increasing student success.
