Dr. Caposey offered a positive, inspiring and also very practical presentation about teacher evaluation, the culture surrounding effective teacher evaluation, providing meaningful feedback, and having those difficult but necessary conversations. He is a dynamic presenter, knowledgeable, humorous and provided our administrative team with an enthusiastic and inspiring start to our school year! In leading a fruitful and interesting discussion about teacher evaluation, our new administrators benefitted tremendously as they start their journey into instructional leadership in an administrative role.

I had the privilege of hearing PJ speak at an IPA Admin Academy on the use of social media in schools. Not only was he knowledgeable and passionate about the topic, but his delivery left you feeling motivated and wanting more as an educator. His ability to incorporate tangible solutions provided support that I could immediately put into place. His accessibility and willingness to provide additional resources has truly been an asset to our school.
