Welcome to UNprofessional development!

Experience Transformational Laughter-Filled Professional Development Trainings, Keynotes & Breakouts!

Is this your staff during boring trainings & uninspiringkeynotes?

We've all been there, right? Stuck in a PD session or keynote that feels more like a punishment than a learning opportunity. You know the type: endless slideshows, an early childhood keynote speaker who hasn't seen a real kid in ages, and advice that's about as useful as a broken crayon.

Sound familiar? It's no wonder so many early childhood educators dread PD & opening keynotes.

Classroom-focused techniques for early childhood staff delivered by a hysterically entertaining Early Childhood Educator that is STILL in a Classroom.

This isn't your average professional development. UNprofessional Development™️ is all about ditching the boring lectures and embracing the power of play. We'll dive into hands-on activities, interactive games, and lively discussions that will make you feel like a kid again.

Get ready to:

  • 🤸‍♂️ Move, laugh, and learn: We'll get those creative juices flowing with playful activities that will spark new ideas and reignite your passion for teaching.
  • 🧠 Challenge your thinking: Explore new perspectives, innovative strategies, and research-based approaches that will elevate your practice.
  • 🤝 Connect with your fellow educators: Build a supportive community of like-minded professionals who understand the joys and challenges of working with young children.
  • 🤣 Make you laugh: Learning should be fun! We'll inject some humor and lightheartedness into the PD experience or early childhood keynote, leaving you feeling refreshed and inspired.

And because I'm a fellow early childhood educator, you can bet my content is relevant, up-to-date, and packed with practical strategies you can use right away. Plus, with 12-24 clock hours of PD required each year, my UNprofessional Development™️ sessions will help your team meet their requirements while having a blast!

Children’s brains are updating faster than your smartphone! They need to be engaged, listened to and receive the gifts that you and your staff can give them. And I’m here to help!

My commitment is to empower, entertain and engage staff in
taking on challenges like:

  • CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS: Understanding how to provide children with challenging behaviors the support they need.
  • BURN OUT: Staying fully committed to the achievement and growth of the students and themselves in the face of circumstances.
  • EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL STRESS: Handling mental and physical stressors inside and outside of the classroom.
  • INEQUALITY: Creating and maintaining a Win-Win environment and culture starting with the administration and staff.

Headstarts!  DID YOU KNOW The Office of Head Start released an information memorandum on supporting the wellness of all staff in the Head Start workforce?

Staff wellness is vital to child well-being. Successfully supporting staff starts with staff wellness. Staff who are happier, healthier, less stressed, and experience less depression are able to engage in higher quality interactions with children.

Programs you can book for your next training to support the Head Start Wellness Initiative:

  • Body & Mind for the Stressed out Educator (Stretching, breathing, and meditation to relieve stress)
  • Yogarate (Child development, physically active learning activities, and self-regulation)
  • Behavior Mastery System (Innovative strategies for challenging behaviors)
