Vicki Hannah Lein

"Using Creativity to Teach Character, Respect, and Resilience"



Presenter Name: Vicki Hannah Lein


Presenter Contact Info--Email: vickihannahlein@gmail.com



Presentation Description:  What if we could teach discipline and have fun at the same time?  What if we used assemblies, skits, music, and some outrageous humor to unleash the genius of our students?  What if we decided to operate from an innovative intention: Students do more--teachers do less? And, what if all this play and creativity was based on brain research, emotional intelligence, and fitness for life?


Could it be true we often underestimate the abilities of our students and ourselves? Did you know that a Gray African parrot taught himself how to spell? Lecturing our students will not evoke their initiative and ingenuity. There is genius that lies untapped in all of us, and we will feel a lot better when we know how to let it flow instead of trying to play it safe.


This workshop demonstrates how to teach self-discipline, respect for diversity, and character–all subjects that lend themselves to boring lectures and the rolling of countless eyes. Instead, we will do this through music, movement, drama, and by setting high expectations.

Come ready to have fun, let go, and experience models of teaching to a classroom or to a whole school.  Learn how to teach with liveliness and creativity any attitude or skill your students need in order to be healthier, happier, and able to compete in a global economy.
