As a pediatric psychologist, I have enjoyed working with students and their amazing teachers for over 30 years. From the inner-city classrooms of Los Angeles to Beijing, the UK and Canada, I travel teaching over 100 executive function skill, motor-cognition and social-emotional learning activities developed with Wendy Young @Kidlutions, Rebecca Comizio @beccacomiz, and artist Meg Garcia. I am specifically interested in changing the trajectory of academic achievement in Title I schools. I love the students and really enjoy Zooming online into classrooms to do 3-5 minute cognitive-motor activities. https://linktr.ee/drlynnekenney
I integrate neuroscience research, cognitive-physical activity, music, and art to help improve students' thinking, self-regulation, learning, and behavior. #TheKineticClassroom #BloomYourRoom #Bloomparenting
