Workshops

My philosophy in providing workshops is that I am guiding a conversation so that all participants leave with tools and resources they can immediately apply with their own learners. 

If you are interested in a workshop that is not listed here, feel free to contact me. I may be able to format a workshop for you, and if I’m not I will be able to provide a referral for a professional who is skilled in your area of need.
