This Course is the Missing Link I've Been Searching For!

This is one of the most valuable professional development courses I have taken in a LONG time! As an educator of 25 years and a certified yoga and mindfulness teacher, I found this course to be the missing link I've been searching for. These are life skills I wish I'd learned when I was in elementary school. Marydee is an expert who knows how to present the material in a relatable way. She breaks the learning into small chunks and provides video, text and reading materials to help you learn in the best way possible. I found myself looking forward to each new topic being released. I can't wait to apply what I have learned to both my own life and to my teaching. Thank you Marydee!

This Course is a Game-Changer

The Building Executive Function Skills in the Classroom course is wonderful! I think the term I've used is "game changer" with district administration. You've done such a great job taking the incredibly complex world of neuroscience and making it accessible and practical for us all.
