     Above, Linda and US Ambassador's spouse, Leslie Harnish, award the winners of  an English writing contest, Linda's books and teacher guides.  The winners, English-Azeri teacher, Linda and Mrs. Harnish were on Azerbaijani television to celebrate the winners and launch Linda's chapterstorybook, Where Dreams Come True, across the Republic of Azerbaijan. Some 4,000 schools have  full classroom sets of her book.  The translated version of Where Dreams Come True, is required reading for all elementary school studnt across this Middle Eastern country.


 A personally surprising impact during Linda's two teaching and leadership tours in Azerbaijan, is the need for her to define and explain what dreaming is -- something that post-communist trained teachers, principals and youth are not encouraged to do at all.  Linda relishes most opportunities to bring her work to schools across the globe.  Stay tuned...

SuperSmarts™  ~  Keys to Unlocking Intelligences 



          In fulfilling the ADA Laws, naming and utilizing the Multiple Intelligences (MI's) plus Emotional Intelligence (EI) in school-age students, for the last 25 years, has proven to be a highly practical and effective way to boost learning, self-esteem and building skills in children throughout the world. Identifying children's strengths and their lesser strengths (disabilities), then matching these with others' intelligences boosts the learning levels and cooperation of all in the learning setting, both children and their adult leaders.  This course begins the process of understanding and using the MI+EI in the after school program and/or public/private school classroom.
