“I loved learning about various ways to tell stories in my classroom.  I love the idea of using my body and especially feeling the emotions of the characters. Your ideas and strategies will make the story telling more meaningful and fun.” – Educator, Newton, MA

Diversity Workshops

Cindy consults on how to build diversity awareness at your school, with trainings for staff and students, facilitated personal story sharing sessions and assistance in setting goals to build a safe environment of understanding human differences.

“Wednesday’s faculty meeting was among the most favorable and meaningful of any I’ve attended (maybe ever)… faculty members learned experientially to communicate with each other …every attendee was fully and authentically engaged – and the exercise touched on a deeply felt need among all of us.” – Faculty member, Gann Academy, Waltham, MA
