Title: Bullying, Relational Aggression, and Harassment: How Adults Can Help Students Create Safe School Environments
We will identify different types of overt and covert bullying, including relational aggression and sexual harassment. By defining and learning to identify all kinds of bullying, school staff can become more aware of their impact on students and become more helpful allies. We will explore practical strategies adults can use to help students create safe and respectful school environments.

Gabe is a young man with an amazing story but he feels his story is not that different than yours. Sure, he was born with a unique body. But if you think about it, you have a unique design too. It just so happens that his design is a little on the unusual side.
Title: Nothing is out of Reach
This training is designed to help inspire you to achieve any goal that you have set. 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. Not just for your students but for the teachers that you work with. It is important that students know that they are apart of a community when they go to school. I believe that when students feel that they have a place in their school they will succeed more not only in school but in life.

Title: Diversifying Instructional Design to Cultivate Student Success
This workshop will focus upon an examination of instructional design from the framework of diverse learners in the classroom. Whether this diversity reflects cultural and ethnic variation, learning challenges and ability variance, or behavioral complications teachers are challenged to create classrooms that provide heightened engagement levels in all students. Students from diverse cultural and learning backgrounds bring tremendous talent, aptitude and capability to enhance educational practice yet these are so often overlooked in the midst of all the other demands teachers face.

Title: Say Anything: How Leaders Inspire Ideas, Cultivate Candor, and Forge Fearless Cultures
The question, “Why are Kindergarteners so unafraid to speak up?” leads off this half-day interactive workshop, which stems from the recently released and critically acclaimed book, “Say Anything: How Leaders Inspire Ideas, Cultivate Candor, and Forge Fearless Cultures.” Participates reflect on their own classroom cultures and the conversational dynamics that characterize them, and in an engaging manner build a proven methodology to creating a classroom where nobody is afraid to speak up.
