"My approach to consulting is about training internal teams to implement and sustain positive change. I work with school leaders to empower all stakeholders (students, parents, educators, school administration, central office administration, school trustees, as well as outside organizations) to work together in developing innovative learning cultures in communities." -Matt Strock
Catalyst Design Professional Development Process
Catalyst Design treats professional Development (PD) as a process—not an event. All consultants are teachers and administrators who are the best in their field. We labor to develop the leadership environment and school and community climate that is conducive to positive change and lasting implementation of best practices. Each piece of the cycle can be purchased separately but is most impactful as an entire package.
