What People Are Saying:

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.

The best training I've attended in 20 years

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!

Not One Doodle

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for spending the day with us. I am generally a "meeting doodler". I was so interested in your workshop that there is not one doodle in the margins. I can't remember that ever happening before.

The Kids Were Listening Intently!

During the Tips to Help Students Succeed presentation, I saw several kids sitting near me. They looked like they were "dragged in by mom and dad." After she started, they leaned forward and listened intently. The teacher in me smiled. She certainly had something for everyone. Even the kids there felt validated. Now, that's a good teacher!
