A bit about us... We both began our careers as Elementary School Teachers! In 2012, Jen's son was a first grade student in Kate's classroom. When Jen would come lend a hand as a classroom parent volunteer, it quickly became clear to us that we worked well teaching and guiding children as a team.
Fast forward to several years later, we found ourselves operating a preschool together! This experience provided opportunities for us to have meaningful conversations and ongoing coaching with parents, who were incredibly thankful for the language, skills, and concepts that their little ones were able to comprehend and bring home from their mornings spent with us at school.
We truly love the natural joy, curiosity and excitement of children- and that is what has driven us to want to educate and empower parents so they can equip their children with the skills to develop into confident, respectful, well-adjusted, resilient and HAPPY humans.
WHY HELLO HAPPY PARENT?
Simply put: we are equipped with the knowledge and expertise on how to handle tricky times with kiddos.
Not only are we skilled in what evidence-based techniques to implement, we have had many, many years (over 40 years combined!) of direct experience working with children to personally put into practice the ideas included in our coaching and courses.
Parents, we can guide you how and when, and the science of why children behave the way they do. We want to give you a variety of parenting tools in your tool belt that will create more calm in your household, and foster deep connections within your family.
