Scheduling Performances for Educators

This is a very special 45-60 minutes of poetry and music designed as motivational renewal for educators. Covering travel expenses is required, along with lodging when necessary. The performance fee of $850 will be donated in its entirety to The Harvard Stem Cell Institute to end Muscular Dystrophy.   Read Harvard's support of this effort.

Outcomes of this performance:

1. Teachers will understand that the multitude of stresses they experience are not endured alone, and become more aware of the fact that students have their own unique pressures to work through in relation to school and home life. 

2. Teachers will laugh - quite possibly shed a tear or two - and experience sincere appreciation for their countless efforts on behalf of their students.

3. Teachers will be renewed with confidence and pride in the knowledge that they have chosen an occupation filled with possibilities to make a sincere difference in the lives of young people.
