"As a long-time special education teacher, I am always looking to stay on top of the latest research-based strategies, as well as further my own education, and I feel that the graduate-level courses offered by SPU and instructed by Tammy Berg were an excellent means to accomplish this goal. The courses were well-designed, challenging, and convenient, and whether it was diving deep into the world of educating students with disorders such as ASD and ADHD, or dissecting the minutiae of the RTI process, Instructor Tammy Berg was always readily available for support, clarification, and guidance. If you are currently working in education and looking to advance both your career and your knowledge, I highly recommend both SPU and Instructor Tammy Berg."

Rewiring School Culture

Print Based Course Printed Course


Whether your school is prosperous or struggling, urban or rural, this course serves as a definitive guide to making sure that the culture in your school is guided first and foremost by what's best for your students. Upfront, this course will establish the difference in a school’s climate and its culture: “climate is around us . . . while culture is part of us.” In fact, the school culture will never be changed by simply adjusting the environment. Instead, a true school improvement (cultural change) comes when internal change comes to stakeholders within the school climate. This course offers a good blend of information and explanation of what needs to be done with practical ideas that are needed to implement immediate cultural change in a school community. The projected outcome of this course is to provide classroom teachers with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies needed to transform the school's culture into one that is positive, forward-looking, and works to enrich students' lives.
