William M. Ferriter

William M. Ferriter uses his 29 years of experience as a full-time classroom teacher to design professional development sessions for educators on topics ranging from establishing professional learning communities and effective systems of intervention to integrating meaningful differentiation, extension, and student-involved assessment opportunities into classroom instruction.

What William brings to audiences is practical experience gained through extensive work with his own professional learning teams and the students in his classrooms. Teachers appreciate the practicality of both his writing and his presentations, knowing that the content shared is content that was developed and implemented by a career classroom teacher. Every book that he writes and session that he delivers is designed to give participants not just a clear understanding of the whys behind the ideas that he is introducing, but tangible examples of how to turn those ideas into classroom and collaborative practices that work.

Bill is also the coauthor of several Solution Tree titles, including Building a Professional Learning Community at Work®, Making Teamwork Meaningful, Creating a Culture of Feedback, and You Can Learn: Building Student Ownership, Motivation and Efficacy with the PLC at Work Process. Finally, he is the author of The Big Book of Tools for Collaborative Teams in a Professional Learning Community at Work.

Bill earned a bachelor of science and master of science in elementary education from the State University of New York at Geneseo.
