"This was worthwhile
and engaging
I recommend it
to other teachers.


I loved seeing all the ways we can apply kinesthetic learning in the classroom to get students engaged.

Lots of great, meaningful strategies that can be used immediately in my classroom! The group interaction and play made the content of your presentation memorable and fun!

“Wonderful, safe, and encouraging environment to try new strategies!”

“Thank you for helping build my confidence as a teacher! I have learned a lot and loved having the chance to try out the strategies, plan a lesson, and teach the lesson! I can’t wait to start the school year with a bang!”

“I was so excited to come each day. It was such a privilege to get to participate in this course!”
