Does this sound like you?

  • Are you looking for creative solutions to the barriers that prevent your students from getting the education they deserve?

  • Are you having difficulty translating your vision into an action plan that you can execute? 
  • Are you looking for programs or curriculum that will empower your students to take control over their own lives and education? 
  • Are you tired of doing the same thing you have always done, just because ‘that’s the way we have always done it’?

I haven’t seen a student, in person, since March 6 of last school year.  I’m on zoom, each day of the week, and talk to black name boxes.  Bottom line - I miss students.  Like many educators, the demands of distance learning coupled with the isolation from colleagues has been challenging – one might even say - joyless.

Crisis of Calm

Are you or someone you know experiencing a crisis of calm? Do you feel like you are in the cycle of reactivity where everything is elevated and magnified? What is the biggest gift you can give yourself right now? Calm.
