Since 1987, J. Bert Freeman and T.A.L.K. Associates have been providing expert assistance and staff development to educators to accelerate
progress, unify direction and concentrate organizational and individual efforts on high performance delivery for student success.
The T.A.L.K. Associates team includes resident specialists and national facilitators, at all education levels. Our abilities can be
focused locally, nationally or globally. Our programs, projects and offerings concentrate on research-based human interaction and
relationships, so that every student can meet or exceed grade level requirements and expectations.
Our vision is that we are masters at providing breakthrough learning experiences for forward movement and continuous improvement beyond your expectations. Our experiences are universal: education, business, government, hospitality, community, non-profit organizations and more. This gives us a broad knowledge about our work and how it relates one industry and even one profession to another. We know this work; we love this work and we love to see you make it work.
For Educators, we provide technical assistance from pre-school through college in the following areas:
School Improvement Plans
Student Learning Environments
Educational Support Effectiveness
NCLB Implementation, Facilitation, Evaluation
We provide our expertise at all levels so that total organizations have the know-how to concentrate their human interaction energy and relationships on front line performance and delivery, accurately and successfully. That includes providing programs and processes of quality management for support services, at the district and building levels to make infrastructure, custodial, transportation, maintenance and food services more student-focused, cost effective and aligned with organizational visions. Additionally, we provide the speaking, writing, learning and skills to address critical realities that assure progress and continuous improvement.
We provide expert assistance for developing and implementing school improvement plans and data-based decision making at all levels and for district and school program evaluations in all phases from design to report, in association with Davidoff Associates.
Success = Students meeting or exceeding grade level requirements and expectations; students increasing qualifications for college and career readiness.
We learn your organization’s direction of excellence. Then we provide an acceleration package that works for your educators – ready to use immediately for student success.
