We have had the pleasure of working closely with Tara McDonald for the past 2 years with her Truine Brain Series. Honestly, I can not recommend her enough and wish that every professional who worked with children of all ages had the opportunity to do this work with her. She is extremely knowledgeable and shares the information in a way that allows you to end each training with new things to consider and tangible steps to try in your own practice with children. She is able to meet each educator and administrator where they are at and allows them to be reflective and thoughtful as to how the information she is delivering impacts them personally. The biggest thing that I personally have been thrilled with over the past two years of working with her is to see the lens shift for every staff member and how that has impacted our entire program in the most positive of ways. The social and emotional health of our teachers, children, and families is the most important work we do each and every day. It is the foundation for healthy cognitive and behavioral growth and learning. Tara’s series of professional development can and will get your program or school to the next level. Trust in her process, it works and you will not regret the decision to welcome her into your lives.
