We cannot teach social-emotional skills to students unless we practice those same skills daily in our own lives as adults. My PD dovetails seamlessly into your existing SEL initiative, as it addresses the often-overlooked adult component. I believe one of the best messages you, as a leader, can send to your team is to let them know that you support them not only as professionals, but also as people.
I am available to conduct sessions virtually and in-person for most school districts in the continental U.S.
Sessions can be tailored for:
- Teacher in-school PD
- Teacher planning/grade-level meetings
- Principal meetings
- Back-to-School convocations.

TOPIC: STRESS MANAGEMENT
COMING BACK STRONGER
HOW TO BE A MENTALLY TOUGH EDUCATOR IN 2020
This stress-reduction workshop could not come at a more important time for your team. As they adapt to unprecedented change, learn new tools, and recover lost instruction, they need to muster up their ability to cope with the inevitable stress.
This session is designed to help educators strengthen their resilience so that they can teach, lead, and focus from a positive mental state rather than getting swept up by anxiety. Contrary to what we may think, mentally tough professionals don’t have more smarts, experience, or luck. Their secret is that they practice consistent habits that keep their stress at bay.
Your team will explore 4 new habits in this workshop that they can practice in as little as 10 minutes. They will leave the session able to more quickly bounce back—no matter what issues, events, and/or people trigger them at work.
TOPIC: MORNING ROUTINES
A BETTER WAY TO START THE DAY
HOW TO DESIGN YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
An educator’s workday can feel like a fast-paced game of Whack-A-Mole. As unexpected distractions pop up from everywhere, your attention is like a hammer that moves quickly through competing priorities.
What if your team could shore up their mindset, mood, and energy before walking into the building? This hands-on workshop teaches how to drastically improve job satisfaction by starting each morning on the right foot.
Participants will do step-by-step exercises to customize their individual morning rituals. They will learn to put themselves in a peak state each morning, even if they are not a morning person and even if they have a family at home. A menu of options to take control of the morning include: exercise, journaling, setting intentions, task planning, mindset shifts, meditation and more.
TOPIC: MANAGING TIME
GETTING IT DONE
THE TIME MANAGEMENT MINDSETS
Most educators are convinced that our profession throws too much at us. While it’s true that we are a busy bunch, it is entirely possible to achieve work/life balance when we release unhelpful beliefs about time scarcity and apply the simple productivity strategies outlined in this session.
Help your team avoid letting their to-do lists steal their nights, weekends, and well-deserved holidays.
This workshop will start by shifting your team’s mindset. Rather than believing they don’t have enough time, they’ll explore the options available to manage all tasks more efficiently. They will develop awareness of bad habits like freezing up, perfectionism, procrastination, and letting overwhelm wreck their mood. They will walk away with better strategies on productivity, prioritization, and time management.
TOPIC: CONFLICT AT WORK
CAN WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?
MANAGING INTERPERSONAL CONFLICT AT WORK
Dealing with seemingly difficult people is a challenge far too familiar for educators. A surefire way to rip you apart from your inner peace is being in the middle of a conflict with a student, parent, colleague, boss, or direct report.
In this workshop, we draw on the psychology, philosophy, and common sense of dealing with others. Participants will first examine unhelpful conflict management strategies such as: worrying, complaining, gossiping, toxic arguments, and setting poor boundaries. Then, they will practice new ways to handle situations when people push their buttons. For example, tapping into different points of view, accepting that parents are sending us the best they have, and remembering that when someone else hurts us, their behavior usually has a positive intent.

LET IT GO
THE ANXIOUS EDUCATOR’S GUIDE TO RELAXATION
Ever feel like your mind is on fire? Maybe you drive home from work in a daze of stressful thoughts. You might get irritable with your loved ones. Your sleep may also be affected by work-related worries.
It’s natural for work to bleed into life. However, knowing when and how to quiet your mind can help you reduce suffering, regulate emotions, and access your calm whenever you need it.
This workshop will show your team how to find the Off button. They’ll learn what steps to take when it’s time to unplug, nourish, and recharge your most important asset – your mind. Participants will leave feeling not only refreshed, but better prepared to have less knee-jerk reactions while performing the job duties you expect of them.
