Ideal for:

  • Professional development
  • Teacher or admin seminars
  • Teacher stress busters

I have gathered the most effective tried and true games for elementary through high school aged groups based on over 25 years of teaching drama in the schools. 

I lead teachers through fun and dynamic games and teach them the tools they can use every day in the classroom to add more focus, collaboration, empathy, communication skills and confidence to their students.

Working with teachers is close to my heart and I know the powerful effect these games can have on children individually and as a group. I see drastic changes in self-esteem and confidence from even the most introverted kids when doing just 15 to 20 minutes on a regular basis. Students will begin to request the games and teachers will be the most popular in school.
