Dr. Patty O’Sullivan works with students via the program Envision Your Future and with teachers and administrators with her Teaching 21st Century Kids workshops. These highly interactive workshops engage teachers in recognizing and reinforcing things they are doing right and sharing exercises and teaching tactics that create better relationship building in the classroom. When students are more engaged, classroom discipline takes care of itself creating more time and energy for learning.

Envision Your Future – Program for creating self-efficacy, goal setting and higher levels of hope, purpose and direction.
Teaching 21st Century Kids (T21CK) Workshops are revolutionary and create long lasting positive energy and better engagements between students, teachers, administrators and parents.
After workshops, we collect comments from teachers and administrators. Knowing that they experienced positive learning and encouragement and came away with practical tools that will make a difference makes the extra effort attending a workshop rewarding.
