PERFORMEX's mission is positioning employees and their organizations for success through the collaborative development and implementation of evidence-based performance solutions.
My Story in a Nutshell...
During my 33-year career in education, I have been dedicated to supporting students and staff with improving performance and achieving goals. To accomplish this, I have engaged in ongoing professional learning and have leveraged evidence-based practices in my roles as: classroom teacher, technology mentor, three positions as a district coordinator, as well as Learning Specialist at the New Brunswick Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

My Story With a Few More Details...
Applying My Learning from Performance Improvement in the NB Education System
The opportunity to take on the role of District PowerSchool SIS Project Coordinator for the Anglophone East School District in New Brunswick was timely. When I started this position, I was in the process of completing a Graduate Certificate in Workplace eLearning and Performance Support (WELPS) through Boise State University--which I completed in August 2015.
During the PowerSchool implementation, I met the challenge of applying what I had learned from my university courses as well as from my ongoing learning from webinars, books, and articles. I carefully designed evidence-based training and non-training solutions to assist administrative assistants, administrators, and teachers with quickly and efficiently completing job-specific tasks in the new student information system. Training-wise, I successfully facilitated numerous face-to-face sessions as well as a few online sessions. To provide just-in-time support to staff with transferring their learning back on the job, I led the provincial team's creation of PowerSchool and PowerTeacher Pro repositories of interactive eLearning modules, videos, and job aids.

The Success That Comes With Teamwork
As a result of the dedication, perseverance, and positive attitude of school office personnel, the efforts of district and provincial staff, and the support of these evidence-based solutions, administrative assistants, administrators, and teaches quickly and efficiently transitioned to completing tasks in the new student information system.
I'm a believer in the advice, If you're still talking about what you did yesterday, you're not doing much today. Accordingly, once I completed the WELPS Graduate Certificate, I began the Master of Science in Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning at Boise State University. I will complete this degree in August 2020. Thanks to these studies, I have been adding new evidence-based practices to my briefcase which are helping to position employees and their organizations for success.
I look forward to continuing to leverage my skill set to support students and staff in the NB education system. With PERFORMEX, I am also branching out to offer services and solutions to support individuals and organizations with performance improvement in the education system of other provinces--as well as in other sectors.

Experience how this eLearning module will help you and your colleagues to support the students in your school, district, and province who are capable of learning-- and whose "differently wired" (Armstrong, 2012) brains equip them with strengths that can be leveraged to overcome obstacles to learning and to learn in different ways.
