Hi there! 

My name is Jocelyn and I am so pleased to welcome you to Jocelyn Seamer Education. As a former teacher and school leader, I understand the demands of our profession.  We often feel an enormous amount of pressure to be perfect ALL the time while trying to maintain some kind of work-life balance. Keeping up with the current recommendations about literacy instruction can be an overwhelming and exhausting undertaking. 

I remember, very clearly, sitting in PL sessions at school or online with two questions in mind:

"That's all very nice, but what does it actually look like in my classroom?"

"How, exactly, am I going to do this so that it helps me get the desired results for my students?" 

When I made the decision to shift from working in schools fulltime to supporting teachers across the country, I knew what I had to do.  In short, create the simplest, most practical professional learning opportunities to help teachers and teams implement structured literacy in their classrooms.

When you work with me: 

WE FOCUS ON ACTION: We work with the manageable and sustainable actions we need to make a real difference to our students. 

IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU: There is no 'should' or 'must' when you engage with me.

I RESPECT YOUR PROFESSIONALISM: I absolutely recognise that every teacher I work with comes with important skills and knowledge already established.

YOU KNOW HOW TO MOVE THE NEEDLE: My content is centred on helping you get great results for you and your students

I DEMONSTRATE EVERYTHING: Talk is great, but it's seeing things in action that help us understand the possibilities. 

Whether you are a regular blog reader, a participant in a 12 week Teach Along, a member of one of my Facebook groups, a viewer of my YouTube channel or a user of my Reading Success in Action lesson sequence books, I wish you the very best in your teaching. On behalf of your students, thank you for the time and effort you put in to implementing evidence informed, structured literacy practices in your classroom. 

I look forward to connecting with you soon,
