WHAT DOES AN INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITATOR (I.F.) DO?
At Sequoyah, the Instructional Facilitator serves in many ways. The I.F. supports teachers by facilitating continuous improvement in instructional practices as well as provides professional development on research-based programs and curriculum.

MEET SEQUOYAH'S INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITATOR
Hi, my name is Shonda Johnson, and I am thrilled to be the Instructional Facilitator at Sequoyah! It truly is a H.A.P.P.Y. place to learn AND teach! I have been teaching since 1992 and have been at Sequoyah since 2013 having moved here from Florida. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I have been a National Board Certified teacher. I have taught Kindergarten, First and Third Grades as well as served as a small group reading teacher for grades K-5. Some of my favorite things to do are spending time with my family, exploring this beautiful state, and cheering on the Cyclones! I am so happy to be part of our Sequoyah family!
