Hey, I’m Devon!
I help newbie comprehensible input teachers teach with their proficiency values, build meaningful relationships, and get students speaking – all without working endless hours, alienating colleagues, or recreating a world language program from scratch.
Switching to proficiency through comprehensible input is a process, not a destination.
Many world language teachers want to empower their students to confidently speak the language in class instead of focusing on unhelpful, out of context language rules.
However, chronic overwork, overwhelm, lack of resources, and a clear roadmap get in the way.
I’m Devon, a world language instructional coach and curriculum creator who specializes in using self care and research-based teaching methods.
I help world language teachers rediscover the joy in teaching by eliminating overwhelm and outdated methods by switching to proficiency-based instruction.
All while leaving with the buses!
I provide ready-made lesson plans, curriculum consulting, courses, PD conferences, and handmade teacher planners infused with self care to restore both joy and excellence in your classroom and life.
