PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Linda offers a TEACHERS’ STAFF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, utilizing movement exercises that illustrate how curriculum can be delivered in the classroom. Furthermore, Linda addresses social and behavioral strategies, that teachers can adjust to whatever grade or population they are serving.

Linda’s communication and management strategies which were approached using movement techniques, captured the attention of close to 200 employees, as en masse they closed their laptops to participate. They were engaged and intrigued, and left with new skills and mindsets. We need this at Cigna.
