Continuous Improvement, Continuous Learning
Kaizen is a Japanese concept brought about by two words that when joined together mean "good work" or "improvement." The principle holds that the key to sustainable success is found in small yet consistent change. The term is typically used in the business sector; however, we find that it perfectly describes the approach that we take with our clients. At Kaizen Educational Consulting, we conduct an initial assessment, establish goals, and implement actionable steps to accomplish each goal. We tailor each service according to our clients’ needs and work to ensure satisfaction. The belief that undergirds each action is that there is always room for improvement.

While she absolutely loves classroom instruction; school leadership, vision casting, and developing other educators bring great joy. Kaizen Educational Consulting was birthed out of a desire to encourage, equip, and educate teachers, school leaders, students, and their families. As a result of these partnerships, educators would be inspired to relentlessly pursue their passion, and students would strive for excellence in social and academic pursuits.
