Helping educators and students be the best they can be is my passion. In educational counseling, I see some of the hardest working administrators, teachers and counselors making deep impact in the lives of their students. It’s important for educators to know that social emotional health is key in academic achievement. When students struggle with behavior, learning cannot occur. I am enthusiastic to share with my fellow educators relevant and practical applications to enhance their relationships with students and deal with conflict in a restorative and respectful way. It is my pleasure and privilege to present a course that helps educators to bring out the very best in their students both academically and behaviorally. I am looking forward to meeting you online.
