Sensitive Children: The Hidden Gems in Our Schools and
How to Help Them Shine 
Presenter: Dr. Row

Did you know that high sensitivity is a normal genetic trait present at birth in 20% of the population? And did you know that sensitive people are often creative, empathetic, highly attuned, and very intelligent? Sensitive children have so much potential, but they are very susceptible to their environments, for better or worse. In the right setting, they shine! But too much overwhelm and they may shut down – for years. In this workshop, you will learn more about high sensitivity and how to help sensitive children thrive in a world that often feels too loud.

Shaming in Schools: How to Interrupt A Harmful Common Practice 
Presenter: Dr. Row

Shaming as a disciplinary tool in schools comes in many different forms, all of which do more harm than good. And it can be especially harmful to quiet or sensitive students who tend to internalize shame in a way that interrupts their ability to learn. Shame in schools is so common and often very subtle that it can be hard to even recognize. This workshop aims to shine a light on common shaming practices and provide tools for developing healthier and more effective ways to connect with students.

Inspiring Quiet Leaders
Presenter: Dr. Row

Just because a student is quiet doesn’t mean they can’t be effective leaders. Quite the opposite! Some of our most respected leaders throughout history were/are introverts who learned to use their quiet nature as an advantage in developing impactful leadership skills. In this workshop, you will learn how to provide opportunities in your classroom that allow all students the opportunity to find their voice and lead.
