We Each Have A "Learning Style" Barbara's presentations focus on getting kids in touch with their own learning style, creativity, and sources of inspiration. The program also engages students to respect the learning styles of others.
While exploring the struggles that her characters experience, she enthusiastically involves the students along the way, creating a positive and mindful experience for all. Barbara Esham's program reaches a wide spectrum of ages, from preschoolers right up through high school students and adults. Sprinkled with humor, inspirational insights and candid personal accounts, her presentations have shown success in motivating students to confidently work through struggle, and strive toward achieving their own personal goals.
Adult Presentations: Barbara also speaks to guidance counselors, teachers, and parents about her journey as a parent with three children — with three different learning styles — and how helping her children develop a "growth mindset" was critical for self esteem and future success.
