Current Keynotes:


Author Visit

An author visit is a great opportunity to get students excited about reading and give them a glimpse behind the scenes of the writing process. Depending on the ages of your students, I will talk about being an author, read my book, "The Little Things: Finding Gratitude in Life's Simple Moments" and lead the students through an engaging activity on gratitude. Reach out to schedule a virtual visit with your class!

Social-Emotional Learning Skills & Love Math Journal

There's no doubt that practicing gratitude has many benefits. But why practice gratitude in math class? Well, because the many benefits of a gratitude practice directly align with what we are instilling in our math students. These include lowering stress and anxiety, and increasing resilience, communication, decision making and problem solving skills. This workshop is based on the Love Math Journal and focuses on areas of Social-Emotional Learning in Math. We walk through the benefits of journaling, affirmations, gratitude, and growth mindset and how applying these to math class will increase student engagement and a love of math.

The Fulfilled Classroom Framework

This workshop provides tips on using the Fulfilled Classroom Framework to create a more joyful, connected and harmonious classroom.  The Framework consists of five pillars (G.O.A.L.S. - Gratitude, Opportunities, Affirmations, Love, and Stillness). We dive into implementing these pillars in your classroom to not only improve your students' wellbeing, but also your own wellbeing and mindset. Building a connected community takes only minor, though consistent, actions; implementing the Fulfilled Classroom Framework will take merely minutes of your time, but will create lasting effects on you and your students.
