Greetings to all!  I hope that by sharing my journey with Whole Brain Teaching you will give it a try.  Check out for a ton of information that will help you on your journey!  It is all free!

A couple of years ago I was searching for a way to reach my kids, as all the ways I had tried were not working.  I kept thinking "there has got to be a better way."  I had heard about how important it was to use the whole brain but didn't know anything about how to do it.  I found the website and found exactly what I needed.  If you hear people refer to 'teacher heaven', they are getting there by using Whole Brain Teaching.

I read just about everything on the website including many e-books, watched videos, read the forum, and basically saturated my brain.  I thought about it almost constantly - my way of internalizing what I was learning. Whole brain teaching was so very different from anything I had tried, I was afraid to actually try it.  Once I decided that if I wanted to be in 'teacher heaven' I needed to start using it, I jumped in.  I started using it in April of last year and was amazed at the response I got from the kids.  I started slowly, and as I became more confident I added more.  As with anything new, I made mistakes but found that it was ok-no big deal.  I just learned from them and went on.  I still make mistakes and am still learning but I know that as a life-long learner I will continue to do these things.

And so began my journey.  Stay tuned for more!
