Sharon Selby presented at our EduTalks 2015 Summer Series. We rated her an eleven out of ten! Her warm and friendly personality and expertise on the topic area engaged both educators and parents in the audience. We were spellbound by her delivery of the material and her practical strategies for intervention. We look forward to her coming back in the near future for another presentation.

~ Maureen Kling and Suzanne Narvey, Co-Founders of EduTalks and Special Education Teachers

Sharon did an exceptional job helping our teachers and families better understand student stress and anxiety. Through a series of thought provoking presentations and workshops, Sharon provided us with a number of tools and strategies designed to help us better support our anxious children and build resilience. Sharon’s workshops were informative, interactive, practical and included a splash of humour!

Testimonials

Thank you so much again, Sharon. I have had so many people contact me to continue to rave about how much they enjoyed your presentation. It was truly a pleasure learning from you and we already look forward to inviting you back!
~ Jennifer Nuttall, Parent Education Coordinator, Lynn Valley Parent Participation Preschool

Alcuin College approached Sharon Selby to present on the topic of building resilience in our children. We wanted to have our parents better understand how to support their children as they transition into independent learners. Sharon has a wealth of knowledge that she translates into practical techniques parents can depend on to help their children through the inherent challenges of childhood. She shares how to create an environment that facilitates connection between you and your child along with opportunities to build the skills necessary to independently regulate emotions and problem solve. I would highly recommend Sharon Selby for any organization hoping to build a better understanding in the areas of self- regulation, resilience and child anxiety. Her presentation is an informative, concrete hour that will impact how you view the realities of childhood today and the tools that you can use to reduce their negative impact.
~ Ms. Darcey Riley, Principal of Alcuin College Junior School

Sharon shared two evening presentations with our parents, focusing on what anxiety is and developing a toolbox to help children cope with anxiety. These very informative sessions supported parents in understanding the physiology behind their child’s behaviour and also gave them very practical strategies on how to help children cope with anxiety. I highly recommend these workshops for both parents and for educators.
~ Ms. Navdeep Aujla, Principal of Parkcrest Elementary School, Burnaby

Sharon’s presentation was engaging, insightful and very practical. Our parents appreciated her presentation about anxiety in children.
~ Ms. Kinder Jones, Principal of Windsor Elementary School, Burnaby
