OUR APPROACH

All AXI Teaching and Learning Consultants are former highly qualified Louisiana teachers. What makes us unique? It only takes one meeting to know we are different. We are educators. We are here for you. We are here for your students!

We are accessible daily to everyone in a school district from school board members to administrators and teachers. We walk beside our teachers to model and coach them in practical instruction, ensuring they are successful at each incremental step.

We tailor our professional development and solutions to the needs and priorities of each district or school with which we work. Our professional development includes on-site and job-embedded PD sessions which includes follow-up accountability.

AXI has proven success in improving the culture of schools and increasing student achievement when our partner districts commit to investing with fidelity in AXI’s technology and professional development solutions. The result is high-quality, engaging instruction and a marked shift in the confidence of the educators we serve.
