“Dr. Jenny Severson has worked with me for 17 years delivering the highest quality PD of anyone I’ve seen in the profession. Most recently, she captured the attention of 2400 teachers at our opening training for all staff. In today’s Professional Learning space when you need to count on someone, think of  Jenny, she came through for us and delivered an outstanding experience. My Superintendent realized how impactful the full day season was stating, “Wow, she’s really got everyone with her and the time is flying by.”

Here’s why my workshops leave lasting results:

You’ll leave uplifted and energized because I’ll give you tools you can use right away. The ideas I present can easily be woven into your day-to-day reality. 

You’ll learn how to keep students engaged because I’ll share exactly what to say and the order to say it in, with sample scripts. Throw out the guesswork on this and follow my proven methods for a better time in the classroom for everyone

You’ll form bonds with your colleagues to create a supportive work environment, one where you play to each person’s strengths and tag team to cover weaknesses. 

You’ll have me in your corner–I believe in you and your ability to make the difference you went into your career for. My unshakeable faith in you is what keeps people coming back to my workshops year after year. I’ll be your biggest champion.

I’m extremely flexible and can adapt what I teach to suit your schedule. This means that I can do a full day event or a half day, 3 hours, 1.5 hours, 1 hour or even just 15 minutes. I can work within your parameters and make a positive impact.

I have also authored two books, the Educator’s 180-Day Gratitude Turnaround and Thrive, which include exercises you can do on your own to continue implementing what I cover in my live workshops.

“I have seen you present many times and today was one of my favs!. It wasn’t about the doom and gloom in the world. It didn’t focus on the negative in teaching right now but on how to be grateful in these times. Thanks! It was great and I appreciate you helping me be reflective and vulnerable. Can’t wait to see you present again.”
