Laura gives the "HOW"& HAPPINESS
I believe everything we seek for our kids and communities is within us -- individually and collectively.
Through relationships and partnerships that form within your staff, families and community during PD & consulting experiences with me (and continue far beyond)--your staff will experience an 'agency shift' and fresh perspectives on 'assets' around them resulting in expansive new classroom learning opportunities for kids and problem-solving, creation done from the inside out!
When kids are surrounded by a loving, connected and empowered community, their well-being and happiness are maximized and they are able to BE KIDS!!
I work with teachers, staff and principals/administrators to increase individual capacity and collective capacity for partnership in learning, growth and innovation.
It's about two things -- connectedness and conditions --conditions for interactions and for power.
I am a strengths-based coach and consultant, an award-winning educator and a local, regional and nationwide community and capacity builder.
I believe every student, parent/family member, teacher, staff member and administrator has the capacity to learn, grow and excel.
The really cool thing is that we can design to build capacity, health and well-being and fulfilled potential.
