Kind words from our satisfied clients.

I have worked with L.E.A.D. Partners for five years and in two different districts. Michelle Whatley and Bob Caudle are both passionate, dedicated educators whose purpose is to coach, lead, mentor, or train teachers and administrators to become experts in educating children. Bob and Michelle have been extremely instrumental in the academic transformation of our high school. These two people are change leaders who have an urgency for educational reform and their expertise leads districts to success.

As a new principal of a large 5A high school, LEAD Partners has been instrumental in assisting me in transforming the critical systems that make great high schools. LEAD Partners has assisted in leadership development, development and analysis of our master schedule/staffing, special education compliance and instructional coaching for teacher and counselor teams. Their support with our restructuring has been so critical for the improvement of student learning...

- Donna Ullrich Principal - Spring High School - Spring, Texas

Five years ago as a new principal of a Title 1 elementary campus, I sought the expertise and experience of Ms. Whatley. The first challenge she helped us to tackle was the transformation to a full inclusion campus. Ms. Whatley expertly guided us through developing a successful master schedule and appropriate teacher assignment. Within our first year of establishing our inclusion program, it was evident that students and staff members were benefitting from our changes. The quality of instruction for all students was improved. Teachers were working together more effectively and efficiently!!! Ms. Whatley has also been instrumental in supporting our campus in development of a Professional Learning Community. She has shared a wealth of resources and strategies with our staff along this journey. Throughout our partnership with Ms. Whatley, she has been available to support us every step of the way. She frequently visits our campus for follow-up learning walks to provide us with invaluable feedback. Our campus has moved from Acceptable Rating to EXEMPLARY in 2011! Our success cannot be attributed is any single factor, but rather the collective hard work and dedication of students, staff, parents, community members, and of course, Ms. Michelle Whatley.

Sheldon ISD has worked with LEAD Partners for several years now. They have provided a variety of services for our district and have helped us improve in the area of instruction, but they have also helped us to put effective systems in place that will enable the district to continue to improve in the years to come. I highly recommend them—they are both personable and professional!
