Learn how to use professional coaching strategies to help your children develop focus, organization, and resilience in school – whatever your version of school looks like right now. This will be an introduction to coaching strategies, language, and some of the signs that your child may need your help. You’ll learn some of the key phrases like “executive function”, “powerful questions,” and “skill-building” and what they mean in this context. Learn how you can use these concepts to help your family deal with the changing dynamics of our educational system.

Pauline Saavedra is a professional coach, mother of two, and has 25 years of experience in higher education, advising and coaching graduating seniors. She has found that the strategies that worked for her college advisees also help her children through the difficulties of school.

Patricia Medvecky: An Exhibit of Watercolors

Patricia Medvecky has always had more than a casual interest in the arts, including great works but as life began to wind down, she decided to try creating some of her own. You will find that most of her paintings are centered around flowers. She chose watercolor as her primary medium because she loves the freshness, spontaneity, and delicate luminous color which is ideal for flower painting. Watercolors allows her to “capture the delicacy, sturdiness, and sheer beauty of one of nature’s most exquisite subjects”.

Patricia Medvecky lives in Salisbury, CT. She has a master’s degree from Hunter College in Education.
