Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about Marydee's speaking availability.
My name is Claudia Ruf and I am the principal at Glencoe High School in Hillsboro, Oregon.
We invited Marydee to speak to all of our teachers during a recent Professional Development day. Teachers are still talking about what they learned, and you could feel the energy in the room.
These are some of the comments sent to me from staff after her visit:
"The information on executive functioning really makes me think about the demands placed on students and what else we may need to pre-teach before expecting certain outcomes."
"Executive Functioning specifics and its impact within the classroom was by far my favorite part of the day."
"The science of the brain tells us that there is a way we present information to the students and a way to react to discipline situations that could be more effective."
I highly recommend her training. Having teachers learn about executive functioning and time management for students will best help us serve the individual needs of all our students.
Your staff may choose whether they would like to attend the presentation together as a group, or separately on their own devices. (Or a combination of both.)
The Zoom webinar plugin must be downloaded onto each device used to access the live, online presentation. The device should have a working mic and speakers. If your staff is attending as a group, a projector screen is required.
On the scheduled date and time of the presentation, all participants must simply click a private link to access the Zoom conference room.
Handouts for the presentation will be sent in advance to your school, for you to print and distribute or send electronically to your staff.
A recording of the presentation will be made available to you within 24 hours of the presentation.
No. The cost of this presentation is not dependent on the number of participants. Please feel free to invite your neighboring schools' staff to join in as well.
A projector screen is required for the live presentation. Marydee will bring her own computer (a Mac) with the necessary adaptor cables.
Marydee will also need a working microphone. A wireless mic is preferred, if available.
Participants will also need a surface on which to write.
Your school will be responsible for printing and distributing the presentation handouts and activity sheets. These will be sent prior to the presentation.
Yes! This presentation is often the precursor to further training. Once teachers develop this knowledge of how they can support their struggling EF challenged and ADHD students, they are often empowered to continue this work.
Marydee teaches a course specifically designed for classroom teachers, called Building Executive Function Skills in the Classroom. This 10-week, online course delves deeply into the brain and how it affects executive function skills in the classroom. This course is available for 3 graduate level credits or CEUs.
Alternatively, your staff may wish to join the Teaching Seeing My Time: Professional Training Course. This course is designed for professionals who wish to implement the Seeing My Time workbook into their professional setting. It runs for 8 weeks, and includes weekly live webinars and an online classroom for discussion and questions. Teaching staff and counsellors may individually choose to join the Teaching Seeing My Time course for professionals, offered quarterly.
If your school district has 8 or more teachers wishing to take this course, Marydee can open a private class for your district. Please inquire for more information on creating a closed version of this course for your staff.
Marydee's training has revolutionized my approach to teaching and opened a new door of compassion for how the adolescent brain operates. Her Introduction to Building Executive Function Skills in the Classroom presentation is the BEST academic training I've attended in my 20 years in the field of teaching. I left the presentation with concrete tools to help students build executive functioning skills. These tools are easy to implement and really do work!
