My primary and foundational vocation is teaching - while I teach about brain research, I also teach about teaching and learning. I believe in Dr. Howard Gardner's concept of Multiple Intelligence. Every person from early childhood to adult develops learning preferences that are unique and individual. When we teach as though every student learns in the same manner, we are cheating the very people we want to teach. Adding learning brain research to the mix also expands the potential for enrichment and understanding. I combine all of these aspects in my workshops for teachers, caregivers, and life-long learners.
I would be delighted to share my passion and knowledge in a "user-friendly" way with any group interested in one or more of these avenues of growth and discovery.
All programs can be custom designed for your group or organization. Basic programs include but are not limited to:
My last exciting speaking engagement was at the Red Mountain Resort in Utah. It is an incredible place and a neat experience.
I continue to teach various aspects of healthy aging for MVP. They are taking pro-active steps in health care by offering educational opportunities to help people learn strategies for aging successfully.
