About e.Merging

e.Merging Educational consulting has been providing educational consulting services from our Denver office since 2005.  Founded by master educator, Laura Barr, e.Merging has been committed to empowering parents, schools, and organizations with research, evidence-based practices to drive decisions about parenting, school choice, and educational advocacy.  Fifteen years later, the consultancy continues to develop and expand with a focus on working with schools and organizations who are committed to student engagement, collective efficacy and creating a professional development culture where student engagement is at the center of Professional Development.

Mission Statement:  The mission of e.Merging Educational Consulting is to empower parents, teachers, and educational leaders with researched based practices to provide children of all ages, all backgrounds, and all abilities the opportunity to develop voice, engagement, and purpose. 

The Why? When we invest in children developing a voice, engagement, and purpose, we invest in the future of our democracy.  Our future depends on parents, schools and educational leaders embracing in developing the adult capacity to develop what our democracy demands:  Ability to ask challenging and informed questions, to take on multiple perspectives and to apply and practice knowledge within context.

The How  Through 1:1 coaching, small group facilitation, keynote speaking and student-centered coaching and instructional coaching Laura collaborates with adults who are committed to student empowerment.
