In my twenty plus years in education, I have attended many professional development sessions. Kathleen is among the best presenters with which I have ever worked! She is completely knowledgeable about the program and passionate about helping teachers to help kids. The training is structured so that participants are engaged throughout in meaningful and relevant learning activities. ~ Michelle; Assistant Superintendent for Academic Success of Smithville School District

As a trainer, Kathleen is wonderful! She does a great job explaining things and I appreciate that she does so from a “been there, done that” aspect. She understands not just the material, but what we as teachers in the classroom are dealing with. ~Elizabeth; Afterschool Program Coordinator

When I was told I was going to a training, I was dreading it. But, I walked away from training with Kathleen wishing I had gotten it much sooner in my career. She gave me more practical tips and insights than any other training I've been to over the last 20 years. ~Seth; Health and PE Teacher

I've attended the same training with Kathleen three times! It's not because she didn't train me well the first time. It's because I just love being around her energy! When I need to be revitalized in my work with kids, I know Kathleen's training is what I need! It does the trick every time and guess what? I also walk away learning new things I can use in my work, too! ~Deb; Prevention Specialist

Bringing Restorative Practices to Your Students

There is no better time than now to learn why restorative practices are important. Your students are isolated, anxious, lonely and scared while sheltering during this time of a pandemic. Restorative practices will help you respond to their emotional and mental needs – helping them feel safe and heard and more ready to engage and learn when your doors open again and you welcome your students back! No matter if you have no experience or lots of experience with restorative practices, you need to meet Bill Michener. His extensive training experience, coupled with his passion for and hands-on experience using restorative practices with kids, is invaluable as the guest presenter in this webinar.
