“I think I have become a ‘LeAnn groupie!’ Her workshops are so engaging, relevant, and feasible that I can’t get enough. The research-based theories and practices she presents are embellished by user-friendly tools and approaches that invite immediate implementation. Her infectious energy, enthusiasm and optimally-paced delivery are in- fused with teacher validation and recognition of teachers’ efforts. She honors the pro- fessionalism of teachers by encouraging and empowering the participants to make cus- tomized applications of material from the sessions. LeAnn never disappoints.”

“LeAnn has been an amazing support for Westlawn Elementary over the last two years. She immediately understood our struggle and instantly began working on ways to transform our campus. LeAnn’s guidance helped us focus on opportunities for student and teacher growth. What LeAnn does is amazing…it is really a talent. She has tremendous resources and loads of energy. She contributed tremendously in changing our campus culture to having a growth mindset, and most importantly helping us believe we as a campus could be successful.

We have many rewards from collaborating with her, and she continues to help motivate and focus our campus and we believe the possibilities are endless. LeAnn’s ability to communicate with teachers and assess the educational and emotional needs of a student is outstanding. LeAnn truly loves working with teachers, giving it her all, listening to their needs and providing guidance.”

“We can’t thank you enough for your presentation. You were the perfect presenter for a day like yesterday when everyone I’m sure came in with their minds elsewhere. Your energy and enthusiasm were fantastic! EVERYONE got a lot out of the day. One of our [leaders] came up to me afterward and told me it was the best PD she’s ever been to and that some of our more reluctant teachers were really excited about implementing the ideas.”

“Attending LeAnn’s workshops has been and always will be one of the best uses of my time. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for her subject matter are incredibly contagious. She presents relevant brain research and strategies that can be immediately applied to the classroom setting. Each time I listen to her, my hand can’t write enough notes to keep up with the abundance of interesting facts she presents. I’m already looking for- ward to her next workshop and can’t wait to apply all I’ve learned this year with my stu- dents. She is truly gifted in her field.”

Principal | Waynesville, OH

“As I complete my thirty-seventh year in education, I have met no one quite like LeAnn. I was so impressed with her knowledge level, personal drive, and expertise. She is pas- sionate, expressive, well read, and strong in her convictions in doing what is best for children. She incorporated the current brain research and best practices throughout the entire presentation.”

Jackie Harvey
4th Grade Teacher |  Centerville, OH

“I am a more effective teacher today because of attending LeAnn’s workshops. She fo- cuses on brain-based learning, incorporating both emotional and multiple intelligences into her practices. Her research is current, and she filters it so what she presents is rel- evant to me as a classroom teacher. I have successfully implemented my new learning into the classroom. As a result, my students have become more engaged and motivat- ed, and taking ownership in their day-to-day learning. Her energy is contagious!”

“I attended one of your seminars last summer in Baton Rouge. I saw you on the day you felt so horrible because of food poisoning, and no one could tell! How you handled yourself has been my inspiration on a few days this past year and helped me do a better job!”
