"Transformative, powerful, and nothing short of amazing."
Thanks to Lori and the TEACH model, I have learned the tools I needed to shift my parenting from unconscious to conscious, from "power-over" to "relationship with." As a teacher, these tools have also allowed me to support the shift in others. In September 2012, I opened the first Teach Through Love-inspired school, Downtown Community School. My journey has been transformative, powerful, and nothing short of amazing. This is how we change the world!"

"It all started to become easier."
When my daughter was born. I didn't know how to handle myself. I was scared, so I started looking for books and trainings and many different things that could help me. I got to another program, and I trained as a parent educator. But still, I felt that something was missing because I was using the tools but still feeling the anger. I didn't know why. I found your class, and it all started to change, and it all started to become easier.
