My expertise is working with elementary school teachers students and parents to bring entire school families together to work as a team.  Since 2007 I've been developing, testing and refining www.climatechangeiselementary.org.  

The key to this new program is the flow of the day which I developed visiting over 2,000 elementary schools in 41 states over a period of 30 years with  www.jugglingforsuccess.org.  In the previous program we got the entire school population involved in a skill that kids, teachers and parents could share. Now we are asking them to share in the solution of the most important problem facing the World today - the climate crisis.

Because I am not capable of personally visiting all 110,000 schools in the US, and because the climate crisis is so important, I want to get others to join me in developing and delivering this program.  So I hope you, or people you know, can meet me for training, learn to deliver Climate Change is Elementary, adapt it for your part of the planet, and make the necessary connections with schools and with vendors to be effective.

This is a big problem and to solve it we need to think big.  So mine is a big proposal, ambitious and optimistic, but not impossible.  We can do this, but we need to work together, support one another and learn as we go.  I'm hopeful, but I need the help of everyone who has read this far to help develop this program and spread it throughout the World.
