“I am captivated, and deeply moved by how simply, but eloquently, you are able to express your vision, compassion and understanding of the needs of our youth……….while reaching out to touch the souls and inspire the spirits of our teachers…”
You will find practical, confirming ideas in Beating the Odds Now! - Ten Simple Steps to meet the challenges we are facing. The steps are rooted in neuroscience, the wisdom of Rudolf Steiner and the Dalai Lama, project-based learning, 21st century skills and arts integration. You’ll find powerful stories, cutting-edge information and inspiring images of what’s working and what’s possible. There’s an Audio CD version now available, too.
In these times of natural disasters, financial contraction, media overload, global division, family challenges and environmental degradation, please write your stories of the odds you’re up against and/or stories of your success on the blog. Now more than ever, we need to focus on what’s possible with the incredible ingenuity and heart of our creativity and collective wisdom. Let’s ignite the spark and start a fire.

When I read Beating the Odds Now, I felt empowered. I loved the way Laurie said that "The standards are there to fertilize your imagination." Wow! Talk about looking at something through different glasses. That almost made me gasp! That is nothing like I feel about them! I liked the visualization of the teacher as hero. We, as teachers, feel so far from that anymore. It is nice to be reminded of our importance.
