I’m super excited to let you know that my friend, Bobbi Deporter, founder of Learning Forum International, has set a stunning goal of reaching 50 million kids by 2015, and suddenly… it’s happening! She’s dedicated 27 years to her “overnight success”! Lots of amazing people are now seeing what she’s done and are getting behind her non-denominational, real world, results-proven “8 Keys of Excellence Character Education Program”! Your help would also make a FANTASTIC difference!

The school program provides K-12 teachers with a full year of character education lesson plans, online resources, training and support.

Quantum Learning for Teachers & Students
Donations have sent many teachers to Quantum Learning for Teacher trainings. After training, most teachers report that their passion for teaching has reignited and they remember why they became a teacher in the first place – to inspire excellence in kids and engage them in reaching their full potential. Specific instruction includes steps for building a strong foundation, a positive atmosphere of rapport and respect, and a supportive environment. The training also includes techniques for improving presentation skills, designing engaging lessons, and identifying and reaching all types of learners. Educators learn strategies for effective classroom management, accelerating learning, making content more meaningful, and supporting standards-based curriculum.
