I facilitate learning experiences that help teachers connect theory to practice. Teachers leave my workshops with increased self-awareness, a big-picture understanding of the needs of their student populations, and new approaches to apply in their classrooms.

Spring 2020 note:

Upcoming workshops open to the public on a pay-what-you-can basis:

I am currently providing online trainings on trauma-informed practice & distance learning to schools, organizations and community groups. You can read about a recent webinar in this Mindshift article. Please email me to schedule an online workshop.

I am also offering individual and small group consultation to teachers and school groups as they navigate social-emotional learning and trauma in our current situation. Contact me for rates and details.
