    HOW OFTEN DO WE GET TO EXPLORE US?
    How often have you had the chance to explore YOU at work? Let's do it together... what makes up YOU, why are YOU a teacher, how did YOU get into the teaching profession, and what unique value do YOU have to offer? It's a selfie with attitude!

    UNLEASHING OUR OWN DIVERSITY SO WE CAN WORK ACROSS OTHERS
    Diversity is something that someone else has, or has to look a certain way, right? In Mahana's world we believe that diversity is us. We all have an amazing and unique makeup of diverse experiences, rituals, people and realities that make us who we are. Let's explore that and see how we can use that knowledge and understanding as a tool to work with other people's diversity - both in the classroom and in parent/teacher interactions. Good times and funky rhymes!

    LEARN TRICKS OF THE TRADE
    Now that you've explored your unique makeup and unleashed your diversity, you're going to need some tricks and tools to work with other people's diversity. That's the inclusion part. We've got you covered! Mahana has a nice and simple set of tools to improve these interactions. We won't fog your brain with frameworks, models and theory. Instead, you'll walk away from us ready to successfully navigate all the different relationships that teaching entails.

    ONCE YOU GO MAHANA, YOU'LL NEVER GO BACK!
    We don't want this to be a hit and run. We want to continue the journey with you - hear your stories, share new stuff and learn from you. Whether it's being part of the Mahana family, helping with specific projects at your workplace, a coffee here and there, webinars, or cultural supervision, we're up for walking together for as long as that's cool.

IT HAS LITERALLY CHANGED THE WAY I THINK. IMMERSIVE LEARNING AT ITS FINEST.

MAHANA'S TRAININGS HAVE STRENGTHENED AND ENHANCED MY LENS ON CULTURE.

“I have never been given the professional opportunity to explore what makes up me, taking the Mahana Culture course has helped me to understand why I work how I do and the strength of that knowledge in working with others.”
