Robyn Hartzell, M.Ed
I have served in education since 1998 and have experience in a variety of roles: teacher, instructional coach, interventionist, trainer, consultant, and program coordinator at the campus and regional levels. I am a proud Sam Houston State University alum. I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas Arlington and my Graduate Certificate in Professional and Executive Coaching from the University of Texas at Dallas. Throughout my career, I have helped organizations and individuals reimagine and turn around what sometimes seemed to be impossible situations. I am passionate about coaching professionals in their craft and helping organizations make a lasting, positive impact on the programs and people they serve.
What clients are saying...
"These bite-sized, blended sessions are tailor made for high engagement levels and time to process and dive deeper into new learning. I like the pre-work assignment because it gets me ready for interacting when we get together with the cohort in the synchronous learning platform. Also, the additional resources in the asynchronous platform, helped me dive deeper into areas of my interest." - Coordinator for Dual Language/ESL Program in Elementary, Texas
"I loved these coaching trainings. Robyn gave practical information with many opportunities for application and feedback! One of the best trainings I've ever attended!" - Secondary ESL Instructional Coach, Texas
Robyn is exceptionally knowledgeable and skilled in meeting facilitation and coaching. She really helped reframe how I approach meeting planning and gave me a lot of great ideas on how to keep people engaged while moving the work forward. Robyn is patient and encouraging every step of the way. It was such a pleasure to work with her.
-Katie Pieri, NY Funders Alliance, New York
"Transitioning careers can be daunting, especially when you aren't exactly certain what the next step might be. Through my coaching sessions with Robyn, I was able to clarify my core values of both what I needed in my next position and what I wanted in my next position. With that clarity, I was able to redesign my resume and refine my job search. The tools I have now are tools that will guide my career moves. She's awesome!" -Dr. Davia Madariaga, Washington
Robyn was extremely helpful to me while I was going through a major life transition having a new baby and new responsibilities at work at the same time. She was extremely helpful coaching me in maintaining and keeping a healthy work/life balance. With coaching, I was able to get ahead of any challenges I might face before they got too frustrating. We were able to create an immediate plan for my success in the transition as well as a 5 year plan (that I wouldn't have thought to do on my own). It has helped me keep my eye "on the prize" day to day for my future and my family's. My time with her made a huge impact on my thinking and the way I approach my work/home life balance. -Tara, Grants Manager, Indiana
