Creating CALM

Are you ready to transform your teaching practice & create the calm classroom you've always dreamed of?

Join Creating Calm, the self-paced 7 module interactive course & professional development program designed to help you create your own calm classroom environment.

Does this sound like you?


You have literally thousands of things to think about & don't know where to start.


You are #teachertired & want to find a healthier work-life balance.


Your go-to strategies aren't working anymore & you need more support.


Despite all of this, you STILL have passion & drive to show up & serve your students.

Trust us, we get it.

Teaching is freaking HARD, & it's only gotten harder in recent years. Responsibilities are constantly being added to our plates. Work-life balance is becoming more difficult to achieve. Time-tested strategies aren't working anymore. Yet we're STILL busting our buns to show up & serve our students each day. 


What if we told you it didn't have to be like this?

There's a tried & true formula to foster a calm classroom environment that is productive, restorative, student-centered, & totally manageable, & we're sharing it with you.

Creating effective classroom systems & strategies shouldn't be so overwhelming or confusing, & it shouldn't take years or even decades of experience to feel confident in your teaching practice.


This is the roadmap that teacher preparation programs won't give you. Yes, this journey will take focus, hard work, & a whole lot of heart...but you're ready to finally get to that destination, aren't you?


Inside Creating Calm, we take you on a 7-part journey toward the classroom & career you've always dreamed about. By the end, you'll feel confident & ready to create calm within your classroom & yourself.

Let us guess. You've

already tried . . .

❌ ...spending hours or days creating your own classroom systems from scratch.

❌ ...reading dozens of books & articles to find resources that may or may not work for your students.

❌ ...implementing a myriad of strategies without adequate support to maintain them.

❌ ...scrolling through social media trying to understand how the Instagram teachers do it.

❌ ...trying to do everything perfectly but feeling overwhelmed by it all.

Or...maybe you've found your stride, but are looking for innovative ideas & actionable tools to level up your teaching practice.

Or...maybe you've found your stride, but are looking for innovative ideas & actionable tools to level up your teaching practice.

If you're struggling to create calm within your classroom, it's probably for one of these key reasons . . .


You don't have a roadmap.


You've been throwing things at the wall, but they aren't sticking. You've read countless books & articles, listened to so many podcasts, & have attended dozens of trainings that yield rare results. You need a guide to clearly & confidently show you the way.


You're not clear on

your values.


You make thousands of decisions each day, & so many of them seem impossible. You may feel dissatisfied with prior decisions you've made. Boundaries are difficult to identify, let alone uphold & protect. You need clarity on what matters most to you.


Your room isn't conducive to calm.


Your classroom doesn't serve every student. Students might be uncomfortable, distracted, or difficult to access. You have limited control over your room size, shape, & furniture, & you need support finding creative solutions.


You don't know your students.


You're struggling to connect with your students & find subjects & activities that excite them. They are acting out or shutting down. You need practical strategies to cultivate community, respect, & positive relationships in your classroom.


Your routines need an upgrade.


You need more routines or perhaps some serious upgrades. Students may be overwhelmed, confused, or unable to perform certain tasks in your classroom. You need resources to structure procedures that will actually work for you & your students.


You're trying to

do everything.


You have high expectations for yourself. You may even consider yourself a perfectionist. The problem is that you've been trying to do everything instead of doing the right things. You need someone to show you what those things are.


You've been inconsistent.



You've tried other programs & so many strategies, but it's been tough to uphold them. Maybe those programs weren't right for you, or maybe they didn't consider the realities of teaching today. You need strategies & systems you can sustain.


Your work-life

balance is off.



You have trouble detaching at the end of the day & you're often the last car in the lot. Your job is relentless & at times, all-consuming. You crave balance, but haven't achieved it. You need coaching to better protect your personal boundaries.

Sound familiar?

Here's the thing.

Education & teaching have fundamentally changed.

Staff shortages, health concerns, learning loss, distance learning, & an ever-growing list of responsibilities have all contributed to higher levels of teacher burnout & attrition than ever before. So many educators feel overwhelmed, overworked, & utterly exhausted.

Teacher preparation programs did not effectively prepare educators for the realities teachers are facing today. We are offering you the tools you need to bridge these learning gaps.

It's time for you to take back control.
