Participants enjoy this high-energy and student-focused approach to professional development. 


Below are descriptions of workshops I’ve lead in the past. Each professional development is custom designed to meet the specific needs of your school and teachers. If you would like more information about having me work with your teachers or students please email 



The best way to appreciate boot camp is to experience it first hand. In this workshop, participants complete over a dozen experiential learning activities that focus on developing skills like teamwork and problem solving. In addition to knowing how to run the activities with students, your teachers will benefit as they develop friendships and a greater sense of camaraderie. This workshop is great for schools and districts that are interested in uniting their teachers and getting them to work as a team. 


Students thrive when they are excited and eager to learn. In this workshop, I show your teachers simple, yet effective, strategies that will get your students to buy-in. Whether it’s developing traditions or creating growth-centered assessments, this training allows you to explore new ways to increase student motivation and create a thriving classroom community. This professional development is great for either new teachers who need techniques to motivate students or veteran teachers that are looking for quick tips. This high- energy workshop is sure to be a big hit!
