Train the Trainer
Training, in itself, is a science of balance. Driving learning is more than public speaking. Trainers must be able to balance information-delivery with meeting the various needs of the learners. This training teaches the trainer how to manage temperaments, personalities and learning styles – all while delivering a multi-faceted, fun learning experience.
Adventures in Attitudes (AiA)
This module is the ultimate EQ resource. It helps people learn to manage their emotions, to develop greater understanding, empathy and flexibility skills at work and in life. AiA facilitates the discovery of timeless powerful principals that affect our success regardless of our work or technical skill set. It changes people’s lives by helping them control their emotions and their thoughts.

It presents a framework for defining six different types of parent involvement and explores ways to leverage each one. Increasing Parent Involvement assists educators in developing an equitable approach to school and family partnership programs.
In all trainings, Teri synthesizes various areas of research to create a customized learning experience to meet the various and specific needs of each client.
