Maryln has always loved the challenge of reaching and engaging challenging, hard to reach, tough students. She keeps going until she finds the tools she needs to reach those students. She delights in sharing those tools, strategies, solutions, and interventions with other educators. She makes use of her background in both education as well as psychology. She is powerful, fun, motivational, and most of all caring as she shares her personal experiences working with children. You will leave her seminar filled with information, solutions, and strategies, inspired to implement what you have learned the very next day with your own students.

MARTIN APPELBAUM, has spent a lifetime dedicated to his objective to make a profound and positive difference in children’s lives.

You will wish you didn’t have to wait until Monday to be with your class.
