We recently had Dr. Kise present to three different audiences over the course of two days. Although some of her themes were similar, she successfully differentiated her presentations for each audience, ensuring that each group’s unique needs were met. The sessions were engaging and allowed us to think and discuss relevant topics that we face in our daily work. Each group left her session empowered with ideas that we could implement immediately! — Jill Geocaris, Director, Illinois Council of Instructional Coaches, Director of Adult Learning, Maine Township Schools

Educator Bandwidth, Burnout, and Blameless Discernment

Jane's Latest Publications

It's time to make your mental bandwidth work for you. Being an educator is more stressful than ever, and teachers and administrators must constantly shift gears to stay on top of the newest initiatives and students' ever-changing needs. Educator Bandwidth provides the tools and strategies to reduce stress, avoid burnout, and regain the time that gets lost to interruptions, temptations, competing demands, and task-switching.

Lead a whole-child learning environment where student engagement and success thrive. This practical educational leadership book guides school leaders in using 12 powerful leadership lenses and the stages of leadership development to overcome challenges and balance priorities while still supporting the whole student.

If differentiation strikes you as too complex and time-consuming, this is the book for you. With 12 core strategies, useful across content areas and kindergarten-adult learning, Doable Differentiation functions as a collection of “recipes” you can use to improve existing lessons and curriculum, instantly engage all students in more complex tasks, and increase student success.

Step In, Step Up guides current and aspiring women leaders through a twelve-week development journey to discover their personal leadership identity and overcome the gender barriers to leadership in education.

Take The Bandwidth Quiz!

Did you know teaching consistently ranks among the top 20 most stressful professions in the world? Long before you feel the kind of fatigue associated with burnout, you’re losing your ability to be effective, efficient, emotionally intelligent, and engaged in your work (McGonegal, 2011). Why? Because you don’t have enough of what we call “brain energy” and “bandwidth.” Bandwidth is your key to energy, effectiveness, and engagement. Take the bandwidth quiz and see how you are doing.
