This idea packed workshop will provide teachers with scores of practical curriculum connected dramatic and kinethestic exercises to help students excel in all subjects.  Teachers will leave with concrete techniques to help reach all students, even the more challenging active ones.  “This was the most valuable workshop I’ve been to in my twenty years of teaching!
