Hi there, Soar to Success Summit attendees!

Elizabeth here—I’m so thrilled you joined me for “A Palette Full of Potential: Unlocking Executive Function through Art” at the 2023 Soar to Success Summit! 

As you’ve seen, the arts are a fantastic and authentic way to nurture executive functioning skills in every area of your classroom, all day long. Whether your students are engaged in process art or appreciating the art around them, you’ll be supporting the development of executive functioning skills like emotional regulation, problem-solving, self-control, and decision-making skills—and more!


Here are some resources to get you started 👇

FREE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING: Going beyond executive functioning skills

If you enjoyed my Soar to Success presentation “A Palette Full of Potential: Unlocking Executive Function through Art” then you know the arts are a powerful way to strengthen executive functioning skills in young children.

But the arts are capable of unlocking so much more. 

You’ve heard of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). But have you heard of Social Emotional Artistic Learning (SEAL)?

SEAL is my unique method of integrating the arts with SEL. It’s for teachers who want to provide authentic opportunities for children to learn how to develop their social-emotional skills.

Executive functioning skills and social-emotional skills are closely intertwined. In this professional development training, you’ll discover how to support both through the arts.

Hi, I’m Elizabeth, the creator of SEAL, arts integration specialist, author, veteran teacher of 24 years (and counting!)


Teachers are burnt out by disruptive classroom behaviors and the constant piling up of responsibilities. That’s why I help empower caring teachers with creative social-emotional strategies that proactively address disruptive behaviors and ease teacher burnout through SEAL: Social-Emotional Artistic Learning.

An arts integration specialist with degrees in Education, Music, Arts, Leadership and Learning, I host theinspiredclassroom.com. I’m currently in my 24th year of teaching and 16th year of hosting workshops, retreats, and online courses in arts integration and SEAL. As a teacher myself, I know how important teacher-centered professional development is—and that’s why I strive to provide that in all my work with teachers.

Thanks so much for visiting my page built especially for YOU!
