Welcome to the Identity Talk Consulting Page!

The process of developing a teacher identity is one that is evolutionary. For certain teachers, that process may take 5, 10 or more years before they are fully secure in who they are in the classroom. I can personally attest to this notion. Even with all the personal achievements I’ve had in a career that has spanned 10+ years in the classroom, I am still a work-in-progress. I still feel that my best teaching years are just around the corner. Identity Talk is the place where you, the educator, can look yourself in the mirror and stay true to the teacher in you. We provide amazing educational consulting sevices.
