The following are a few of the faculty development presentations/workshops I have
conducted:

Strategies for College Success; Carl Perkins Grant-funded workshop (career-based training
programs focused on career pathways from high school to college)
  Testimonials:
  • "Laurie is an invigorating and inspiring leader in the field of motivating
    educators to motivate learners. Her enthusiasm is infectious and spurs me on
    each time I attend her workshops."
  • "Laurie has an incredible gift in delivering information. She is engaging as
    well as knowledgeable in her field. A treat to experience, especially since a
    workshop on student engagement could be dry."
  • "Extremely competent, intelligent presenter who knows how to engage with
    her audience; lead them to new knowledge."
  • "Great organization of presentation & understanding of what we face with
    students and their needs. The sharing of stories always is engaging."
  • "Learning how to self regulate and get students to be honest with themselves
    to overcome procrastination."
