Connect  vs Control

Connected Kids & Educators

My approach to education and basic wellbeing and self-care is

Connect vs. Control. 

We as educators, parents and therapists must be able to connect or be attuned with ourselves to effectively connect with our students and children. By listening to the unspoken language, I have spent decades discovering and cultivating ways to help individuals find attunement within themselves and others.

My Professional Development provides tools of Attunement for educators to attune with themselves and then with their students.  

The beautiful thing is many of these tools are right there at our own fingertips and readily available at any time throughout the day.

"Dana's  program was a success upon implementation... Dana inspires teachers as a mentor/coach as they implement and incorporate movement & rhythm into their classrooms and she serves as a support system in all aspects of learning including social relationships and promoting positive behavior techniques. I highly recommend Dana to train and demonstrate her movement & rhythm methods to early childhood professionals."
