My name is Rachel French, and in 2012 I was certified by Dr. Erickson and Dr. Lanning as a Certified Trainer myself.
Since then, I have become a full-time educational consultant. I have had opportunities to present at conferences, consult with schools and lead workshops in more than 20 different countries in Europe, Asia, North America, Africa and my home country of New Zealand.
In between, I have co-authored two best-selling books. The first one was Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom (2nd edition) with CBCI founders Dr. Lynn Erickson and Dr. Lois Lanning themselves! The second one was Concept-Based Inquiry in Action with my colleague and good friend Carla Marschall, whom I met at the CBCI Institute back in 2012.
I founded Professional Learning International, and I now co-lead the Lynn Erickson and Lois Lanning Certification Institute each year, together with talented educator and CBCI Trainer Tiffanee Brown.
Why am I sharing this? Only to illustrate what is possible once you become a CBCI Certified Trainer!
