Your host - Michelle Korenfeld
Michelle Korenfeld is a lifelong creativity educator, Amazon author, 21st century learning curriculum developer, facilitator, painter and poet, whose purpose is nurturing curiosity in children’s hearts and minds.
Engage yourself in the workshop recording to be inspired by this highly creative person. Michelle's lifelong research has brought about this inspirational workshop.
Deep-dive into teaching and educating today's brighter than ever kids for future readiness.
Michelle's STEAM book, Creative Children Like the Animals of the World and her Raising Creative Thinkers Guidebook are based on her teaching at the Dr. Erica Landau Institute for the Advancement of Youth to Excellence and Creativity in Tel-Aviv.
Scientifically, Michelle's materials are based on conversations with Dr. Moshe Rishpon, who established the Clore Garden of Science and the Science Oriented Youth Department in the Weizmann Institute. This is a pioneer program in science education and a leader of that field worldwide.
Michelle believes that all children need and deserve the kind of education gifted students experienced in those institutes for the past 40-50 years. Alumni of the courses in those two establishments became leaders of their fields of expertise in Israel and globally. They said
it all began at those courses, where they were given the opportunity to explore, experience
and express. Curiosity to develop projects was ignited. Overwhelming emotions and behaviors were balanced. And social-emotional skills were nurtured to bring success.
"Excellent, well planned, good details."
"She is a very special creative leader."
"The only Wow I gave."
"Michelle has a very absorbing way of speaking, illustrating
and engaging her audience.
I learned, laughed and was amazed."

Coloring and drawings inspired by the prompts they embrace a shield against bullying ignited by their own advice.
Engage students with experiential activities and musical fun. Teach kids without them noticing about the food chain. Nurture curiosity introducing terms like diversity and relativity. Instill values of protecting nature and send the message that we need to proactively protect our mates and handle relationships with care.
Empower those that need to become assertive, and balance those that tend toward aggression. Invite the kids into an adventure of discovery for an anti-bullying education, or should we say proactive behavior education, that lasts.
