Last summer, I had the incredible opportunity to participate in a workshop led by Dr. Monica Mulholland. It was on Teaching Languages Through Creativity, Drama Techniques, the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, and Brain-Based Education. It took place in Bayamo, Cuba, during the Catholic Church Summer School for Teachers. It was the best and most valuable training I’ve ever had the chance to participate in. Dr. Mulholland’s teaching style is full of energy, and she always wants the participants not only to learn, but also to have fun; a perfect combination! The week-long workshops provided us with tools to engage diverse students, and they also emphasized the importance of creativity in the classroom. We are very grateful for this amazing opportunity, and we look forward to sharing another session with Dr. Mulholland next year.

A few weeks ago Dr. Mulholland visited our school to lead a professional development for parents and teachers of Colegio Interamericano de Guatemala. It was by far one of the best and most useful trainings our school has ever organized. Monica’s presentation style provided our community with the perfect blend of research and hands on activities. The result was a learning experience that was not only useful, but truly inspirational. Thank you again to Monica for reminding all of us as teachers and parents of the importance of mindfulness in schools and in life. Well done! Evan D. Hunt, General Director at Colegio Interamericano de Guatemala. August 12, 2016.
Interamericano is a Pre-Kinder to 12th grade bilingual school in Guatemala. Dr. Mulholland came for two days to present workshops on The Art of Teaching and Learning for our teachers and on Creatividad y Uso Óptimo del Cerebro for our parents’ group. Her knowledge of the subject matter and her presentation skills are excellent. Furthermore, since she is fully bilingual, she was able to present in Spanish or English depending on the audience. Everyone appreciated getting the information in their own language and the reviews of her visit were outstanding. Victoria Pira de Quiñonez, Directora Técnica at Colegio Interamericano de Guatemala.
