Training

I work with community agencies, boards, center directors, and teachers in the education sector to develop trainings that meet their needs. Initial needs assessments and dialogue are key in the design stage to customize strategies to reach desired outcomes.  Trainings are research-based and underscore the organization’s values and strategic direction. They are also fun, collaborative, and engage all the senses. Directors or teachers leave with inspiration, as well as practical strategies to implement and refine.

Customized * Engaging * Collaborative * Generative

Here are examples of popular or recent trainings. Others can be developed to meet your needs.
