Workshops for Parents, Families, Teachers & Educational Leaders
PARENTS & FAMILIES
Parent Champion Precepts
This program is designed to inspire and educate parents to be their very best as school-partners. Parents will be inspired to analyze, reflect, and take action in regards to HOW they co-educate and partner with their child’s school. While schools are creating a culture of success, so too will families.
Building the Home-School Connection
Your child’s best chance at academic and personal success is linked to the strength of the home-school connection. In this workshop, learn key methods, strategies, and structures to build a solid home-school connection that will result in Parent Champion behaviors.
Designing a Balanced Summer
What does a healthy summer look like? Our students are not in traditional school for almost two months. This requires a shift in family life as well as mind-set, habits, and structure. Don’t let summer un-do all that you have put into place as a Parent Champion. Academic activities, personal growth, rest, and play are all key to building a balanced summer so you and your child can live balanced lives.
Being ready for school is more than new clothes and new school supplies. Readiness is a growth mind-set, the proper attitude, emotional stability, and the organizational structures in place to be ready to “do school” instead of letting another year of school do you.
Parents’ Right to Choose: School Selection for Your Child
This workshop educates parents about the types of schools that exist, assists parents in getting clear about the best school for their child, and then guides parents in how to best select a school with clear step by step guidance.
TEACHERS & SCHOOL LEADERS
Parent Champion Administrative Leadership Coaching Workshop (1 day)
“Strategies to Engage African-American Parents” – This coaching workshop identifies ways that African-American parents feel alienated in the process of parent-school engagement and provides explicit strategies for more effectively engaging and strengthening partnerships with African-American parents. Site leaders leave this workshop with concrete tools, revisions and improvements to what they have already created, as well as new ideas to implement at their own sites.
Parent Champion Administrative Leadership Coaching Workshop (1 day)
“Strategies to Increase Academic Engagement for African-American Students that Benefit Your Entire School” – This coaching workshop presents and delineates concrete methods and strategies to create academic success for students of color. With tried and tested strategies, administrators will learn the process, specific methods and tools to create a more academic school culture. While strategies are targeted for success with African-American students, all students benefit from an increased academic culture, allowing us to improve our schools from a place of inclusion – and not “an additional program.”
An Educator’s Mindset for Educational Parenting
This workshop is excellent for educators desiring to grow and learn in this area, especially those in teacher induction and Administrative Tier I & II programs. As schools embrace greater parent engagement, what mindsets and ways-of-being are critical to ensure growth and success in this area? This workshop will address the answer to that question, as well as provide a forum for the discussion of the skills and strategies needed to support greater parent engagement.
PARENTS, FAMILIES, TEACHERS, & SCHOOL LEADERS
The Power of Vision & Visioning: Allowing, Be-ing, & Creating
Vision is the physician. A clear vision can heal a situation, guide a mission, and/or allow you to consistently live from a place of clarity. Learn the power of vision as well as the practice of visioning to activate your vision from a place of inner-work and inner-preparation of be-ing that allows deep clarity before taking action. Often effortless, visioning allows you to embrace new ways-of-being and navigate internal shifts to manifesting and living the highest vision for your life. When your vision is clear, your decisions are easy.
Meditation is a tool that allows you to connect to your own best teacher and source of wisdom – you. Embracing meditation as a practice to connect to our inner-voice of guidance, we will explore the simplistic precepts of beginning-level meditation both conceptually and experientially.
Crafting a Mission & Vision Statement for Your Life
Alignment of your words, actions, and thoughts is critical to success. By spending time focusing and crafting a written statement that speaks to how and why you live and lead, you will have a critical tool to govern your life from a place of purpose and integrity each day. You will write your personal roadmap to guide your daily choices, align your actions, and use the power of your word to manifest the life you desire.
Vision Boards & Creation Pages
Using our inner and outer creative selves, vision boards and creation pages are a tool to allow us to incorporate manifestation principles and/or all 3 forms of meditation simultaneously if used properly.
Creating from Flow
This workshop is designed with the intention of balancing work and relaxation to create the care-free life experience you dream of. Exploratory and experiential with a series of activities that result in a personalized roadmap of your professional and personal success that captures your vision and helps you get in the flow – an alignment of your desires, goals, actions, and results. In essence, you will learn to create from the flow of your spirit, honoring that flow to increase your time, productivity, joy, creativity, and success.
Conscious Creative Action: Living & Leading with Time & Spaciousness
Busy-ness is a distraction (a dis-attraction). Do you want to create more time in your life? Do you have projects and ideas you’d like to develop but don’t have time or the discipline to move forward on your ideas and goals? Do you want to implement a deeper commitment of action to your life’s purpose and work? This workshop will empower you to shift the trajectory of your life to step into action and create! In this workshop, you will learn about the new Creation Formula™ and other tried and true strategies to learn to create from the flow of life. The course uses a balance of practical tools & strategies along with spiritual tools (meditation, visioning, & Creation Pages™). At the end of this learning journey, you will have the tools to live your life more consciously and know how to take conscious creative action on your goals, projects, and dreams – and still have time to enjoy your life.
