How To Be a Kid Live Happily Stay Healthy Enjoy the Everyday

If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.

-Ignacio Estrada

The Way We Educate is Outdated....

Children are full of curiosity, imagination, and magic. So why does the average classroom not embrace that? Join the movement of passionate people, like you, truly looking to make a difference and inspire change in today’s school system. Together, we can create learning environments that go beyond traditional methods, tapping into the full potential of each and every child.

What is How To Be a Kid™ ?

The short answer; a professional development program for educators that provides strategies, resources and one on one support to deliver a whole body approach to education.

How To Be A Kid™ is a whole child, kid-centric approach to learning that teaches kids the way that kids learn and can be seamlessly integrated into ANY curriculum. The How To Be A Kid™ program has a strong base in Social-Emotional Learning and introduces the concept of Sensate Learning™ which incorporates the whole body and movement, engaging all of the senses in the classroom, creating an optimum environment for both students and educators. 

The goal of this program is to teach educators how to introduce deliberate and strategic movement into the learning process to enhance focus, retention, and comprehension. We do that through four key objectives:

Embrace

Embrace The Whole Child

Integrating physical activity and movement-enhanced learning into the educational process, that engages the body, mind, and senses.

Re-Evaluate

Re-evaluate The Way We Teach

Tapping into the power of the mind-body connection, and seamlessly bringing the full body into the classroom experience.

Toolbox

Empower Yourself

Expanding and enhancing your tools and resources to be the teacher and mentor that inspires, uplifts, and truly embraces the whole child.

Create Dynamic Environments

Creating more dynamic and effective learning environments, fostering better engagement, retention, and overall well-being in students.
