    • Instructional Strategy with Unflagging Courtesy and Respect

      Susan Moehl, 6th Grade Reading Teacher Northwest Middle School Kansas City, KS

      I am pleased to have the opportunity to write a letter of commendation on behalf of Kobie Wilkerson. Mr. Wilkerson serves as an educational consultant to Northwest Middle School in Kansas City, Kansas (2010 – 2011) where I am a 6th Grade Reading teacher. I am relatively new to teaching, although – using my MBA degree – I practiced marketing in the Kansas City metro area for over 30 years, holding a variety of positions in both for-profit and nonprofit milieus, large and small. As such, I have worked with many consultants serving in many capacities and believe my comments about Mr. Wilkerson reflect this depth of experience. I am in no position to offer comments relative to Mr. Wilkerson’s effectiveness as a coach to my school’s administrators because I have not been in a position to observe his coaching firsthand. I can comment, however, that in all my dealings with Mr. Wilkerson (at staff retreats, in-service training, and during his observations in my classroom), I have found him to be uncommonly genial and gentle... an arresting and compelling approach for an individual tall in stature and personality. Mr. Wilkerson’s approach is to offer instructional strategy to teachers with unflagging courtesy and respect for both teacher and students. In this, he is a perfect complement to our Principal, Dr. Donnie Mitchell, who shares these same qualities. I would expect that these shared values allow them to work very effectively and efficiently together. Northwest Middle School is a school coming off improvement plan during a national budget crisis that is unparalleled in the service experience of our administrators and teachers. It is my understanding that NWMS has the lowest socio-economic stats of any school in the state of Kansas. Thus, our challenge there goes well beyond the budget issues facing all schools to address a poverty mentality in many students and their caregivers that places them at risk of not becoming fully-productive, healthy, happy citizens. Mr. Wilkerson deeply understands and appreciates the challenge of this context and, in my opinion, correctly approaches it on the basis of love and relationships. It is this wellspring of true commitment, affection/love and respect that makes him so unusual and effective in this complex environment. Anyone can read books on instructional strategies. Most anybody can communicate these strategies to other adults. Few can communicate them in ways that truly inspire, refresh and re-generate… reminding you exactly why you show up to teach every day. Teachers, as the “front line” in this battle (not hyperbole) to turn lives around through moral and academic education, need the kind of “support of the spirit” that Mr. Wilkerson and Dr. Mitchell provide through abundant personal notes, their generous availability, zillions of donuts and gallons of orange juice, recognition's of all kind and – most of all – their bottomless store of good humor. Mr. Wilkerson is a unique educational asset. No doubt about it.

    • Unleashing Full Potential as Agents of Change

      Dana Carroll, 6th Grade Language Arts Teacher Northwest Middle School Kansas City, KS

      It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to express my gratitude for and admiration of L. Kobie Wilkerson. As a 6th Grade Language Arts Teacher at Northwest Middle School in Kansas City, KS, I can say with certainty Mr. Wilkerson has provided the faculty and staff members at Northwest with the encouragement and excitement needed to successfully facilitate learning in an urban school environment. Mr. Wilkerson has been a large part of establishing our school environment since before this school year began. Our entire teaching staff attended a summer retreat in which Mr. Wilkerson was our facilitator. We participated in activities which allowed us to unleash our full potential as agents of change. He spoke in great detail about how “learning happens in a conversation.” With Mr. Wilkerson’s assistance, our school has had a lot of opportunities to learn and grow through our open conversations during staff development. He has shifted our thinking and beliefs and has been a catalyst for our school to focus on being the best middle school in our district. Mr. Wilkerson has helped in my classroom with some of my students that have struggled in a classroom environment. After these students have had an opportunity to speak with Mr. Wilkerson, I have noticed a positive change in their classroom behavior. Mr. Wilkerson has coached me on developing a positive learning environment for my students and helped me gain the skills needed to consistently provide this kind of environment for them. It is my belief that Mr. Wilkerson is a great coach and a unique asset to any school he is a part of. Please feel free to contact me should you need any additional information.

    • Creating Cultures of Accountability

      Pamela James, 21 Year Veteran Teacher 5th Grade Decatur, GA

      This week has proven to be a definite high point in my career. Our leadership team had the pleasure of having Mr. L. Kobie Wilkerson present a staff development course entitled Creating Cultures of Accountability: Communities That Sustain Achievement by Impacting Instructional Practice and Praxis with a Focus on Relevance, Relationships, and Rigor. Mr. Wilkerson made promises at the onset of the course and by the end he had more than delivered on them. In no time, my colleagues and I were on a journey to self discovery and learning how to genuinely connect with one another and our students. As icing to this already delicious cake, Mr. Wilkerson brought two of his children’s books “Fred and Mary” and “Queen Infinity”-- which are as much a treat to adults as they are certain to be with children. I consider this to be the most worthwhile staff development experiences I have ever had the pleasure of attending! Should you decide to have Mr. Wilkerson visit your school, and you should, it will undoubtedly be a rewarding, inspiring experience which is sure to assist in propelling your faculty and staff to the next level of achievement in both their personal and professional lives. I cannot wait to implement all that I have learned!
