William Powell has been involved with Cognitive CoachingSM since the early 1990s, when he invited Bob Garmston and Art Costa to conduct the Cognitive CoachingSM Foundation Seminar at the International School of Tanganyika in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Bill served as CEO of the International School of Tanganyika from 1991 to 1998. Most recently, he introduced Cognitive CoachingSM into the International School of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, where he served as Headmaster from 2000–2006.
Bill has an undergraduate degree in English Literature and a Master's Degree in Education and School Administration. Bill is a trainer for the Principals' Training Center and is a frequent workshop presenter at international teacher conferences. He is a co-author, together with his wife Ochan Kusuma-Powell, of Count Me In! Developing Inclusive International Schools and co-author of School Board Governance Training: A Sourcebook of Case Studies. He has also contributed a chapter on the application of Cognitive CoachingSM in teacher recruitment to Cognitive Coaching: Weaving Threads of Learning and Change into the Culture of an Organization, edited by Jane Ellison and Carolee Hayes.
At the present time, Bill is Co-Director, together with his wife Ochan Kusuma-Powell, of Education Across Frontiers, an organization dedicated to the professional development of international school teachers and administrators. Bill and Ochan are presently working on a book entitled Making the Difference: Differentiated Instruction in International Schools, which will be published in mid-2007.
Bill and Ochan share their time between their home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and a tumbled down farmhouse in the French Pyrenees where Bill and a handful of sheep attempt—unsuccessfully—to keep the European brambles at bay.
