Athletic teams improved both on and off the field, attendance increased and the community donated over $60,000 to help improve the PTHS athletic program.

Title: Creating Community in the Classroom
As teachers, we want to push our kids academically. However, if they don’t feel safe socially, they may be hesitant to take risks in class. By investing time at the start of the year to help kids get to know each other, you will be able to challenge them academically sooner in the year.

Whether it is something small or the biggest idea you have ever come up with I will help you find different ways to reach them. I will also talk about how to create a community within your school.

Title: Unleashing the Healing Power of Personal Narrative
Narrative writing is about so much more than just “show vs. tell” techniques designed to bring a personal story to life. It’s a way to ignite a passion for writing among youth, while helping them to find healing, empowerment and validation by writing the deeply personal stories they need to tell. It’s also a way to foster understanding and compassion among peers and the community at large. In this hands-on narrative writing workshop, NYT bestselling author Ingrid Ricks draws on personal experiences and lessons learned working one-on-one with more than a thousand students to help you unleash the healing power of personal narrative for the youth you mentor—and for yourself.
Title: Reducing Financial Stress Through Retirement Planning
Planning for your retirement. No matter how much you love what you do, you probably dont want to do it until you drop. I help teachers understand what they have with their current retirement plans (generally PERS) and how that can be the keystone in their retirement plan. Science tells us that financial security and reduced mental stress increases educator performance. Understanding your current retirement plans from current and former employers is the first step to that day when you can retire on your own terms. I show people in a fun and involved way, what they can count on and what can do to fill in the gaps. Financial lessons plans available for classroom situations.
