What is it?

Teach Like Their Lives Depend On It is teacher “boot camp” where we engage together in deep learning to discover how to improve what we do, for all students, to engage them differently, support their learning, and have fun.

It’s about classroom management as engagement and student instruction as discovery…

…all through social emotional learning, trauma informed practice, and applied brain research, learning a new blueprint that brings it all together.

The experience is 48 hours of face to face work; 6 days, 9 AM – 5 PM, and supporting online work in the evenings.

But it isn’t a “one and done.” There are online forums for ongoing peer and instructor support and monthly group coaching sessions. Additionally, we have packages for schools that send multiple staff that includes consultant/coaching hours.

Participants receive and explore Leah Kyaio’s work in The Magic of Engagement: Education’s First Step

If you’re an extraordinary educator ready to dive deeper and get better at what you love, THIS is your opportunity
