Course Catalog


This is a training unlike all other professional learning because it is continuously rooted in the 'why'. This training explains how the brain interacts based on a variety of stimuli with the overarching goal of supporting each teacher to understand enough neuroscience to shift daily learning."

Dr. Rosa M. Villarreal

Principal

Kent Elementary School

Immersive Professional Development Long Courses/Institutes:  3 - 5 days

In this 3-5 day immersive course, a framework and foundation in evidence-based Neuroscience is taught that empowers educators.  Every participant will gain insight into the science behind how children learn and be given practical and proven skills/tools to identify and re-engage students.

Learn how to:

  • Create a stress-free classroom for all
  • Eliminate disciplinary referrals
  • Increase Academic Performance
  • Help students self-engage with voice and agency
