"I am a more effective teacher today because of attending LeAnn's workshops. She focuses 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 relevant 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 motivated, and taking ownership in their day-to-day learning. Her energy is contagious! "

"Attending LeAnn's workshops have been and always will be one of the best uses of my time. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for her subject matter is 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 forward to her next workshop and can't wait to apply all I've learned this year with my students. She is truly gifted in her field. "
