MBLLC

SCHOOL OFFERINGS

Maya Bialik LLC provides several different consulting packages for schools looking to strategically redesign their approach to curriculum and create meaningful education.

Rationale:

Curriculum is critical, yet most schools don’t have a cohesive strategy. Maya Bialik LLC helps schools think strategically about their curriculum choices and the way they are operationalized in the school climate, helping teachers and students get the most out of the way the curriculum is implemented.

Approach:

Mix-n-Match or start with one and then do more as desired: Every school is different, with its unique goals and logistical constraints. MBLLC will work with you to figure out how best to schedule and price whichever options are chosen.
