National Educational Trainer
Every educator understands that all children are different and we have to take the time to get to know each one of our students. Our goal as educators is to ensure students are highly engaged in their learning. Engagement starts with the teacher. Kim will demonstrate practical strategies to bring engagement back into the classroom! She will show you how to bring enthusiasm about your content, bring out your personality in the classroom, develop positive relationships with students, present content in novel and creative ways, and use brain-based methods in combination with differentiation by varying your instructional strategies. These are just a few great ways in which teachers can drive the engagement in their classrooms.
Kim also believes educators have the toughest job in America as they are asked every day to wear many different hats. So, she believes that teachers need to be given research-based, proven, practical strategies and applications that teachers can start implementing immediately – without throwing anything out that is working in their classroom.
Kim understands that students come into our classrooms and schools with different backgrounds, cultures, cognitive abilities, assets, and experiences. Sometimes the only thing students have in common is their age! The “one size fits all” approach does not work anymore.
Kim is dedicated to helping educators gather more tools for their teacher toolbox, motivate and inspire teachers to take risks in the classroom, and to make their jobs a whole lot easier. Teachers and students can have exciting, new, and unique learning experiences together.
