Critically Acclaimed Services

Sarah Henry’s school system has the highest graduation rate in the State of Indiana. The turnaround was achieved by utilizing this system, and without the same economic advantages, helping Brownsburg go from 27ᵗʰ to 1ˢᵗ in the state.

“This workshop was 5/5 in value! It’s always helpful to grow as an educator. This was most valuable because we aren’t just adding more things to our plates, but we were taught to take things off our plates to focus on what’s important. I would highly recommend!”

About Me

The Knowing-Doing Gap is a constant obstacle in education. After presenting at state and national principals’ conferences, the question is often asked, “Now how do we actually do this?”

As a secondary school science administrator, Sarah Henry does professional development, curriculum development, training, hiring, and evaluations for science teachers in the Brownsburg, Indiana school district. Through her experience in helping Brownsburg go from 27ᵗʰ to 1ˢᵗ in state rankings, teaches others how to put proven strategies into place.

“My goal is to spread the knowledge that students can get a quality education, even if their school isn’t set up as optimal.”

She presents information related to education alignment at teacher and principal conferences on the local, state, and national level. She also provides curriculum consulting for specific projects.

People, Not Programs

It seems to me that most Americans, in a variety of career fields, are looking for the magic pill.  The new technology, program, or tool that will be the answer to all of our questions; the solution to the problems.  I can’t even imagine how much money has...

Defying Gravity…

Being uncomfortable, allows you to grow. Do you have someone who pushes you to be uncomfortable? I have a friend, @CarrieRosebrock, who pushes me to step out of my comfort zone to help me grow. As someone who has dealt with anxiety my whole life, I can come up with a...
