I created The Teenage Brain Thing as a resource for educators to tap into the potential of the teenage brain.  If you are a middle or high school educator, or someone who works closely with teenagers in general, you've come to the right place!



“Why do I have to repeat simple instructions over and over and over again?!”

It’s “the teenage brain thing!”


“How come my students struggle to remember to do their homework?!”

It’s “the teenage brain thing!”


“Why does my child’s backpack/room/locker look like a nuclear explosion went off in there?!” 

It’s “the teenage brain thing!”

I asked myself these types of questions years before I started diving deeper into “the teenage brain thing.”

After teaching high school for nearly two decades and raising two children from childhood into their teenage years, I realized there was A LOT to learn about “the teenage brain thing.”

And that is how The Teenage Brain Thing was born. I realized that there’s a lot of information out there about the science of the teenage brain, but not a ton that specifically uses science to figure out how to best educate the teenage brain. 

My passion is helping secondary teachers to feel empowered through knowledge, insights, and strategies about the teenage brain so that they can help create teens and tweens who are capable of accomplishing their goals.

I truly believe it is our responsibility as educators to shift our approach to how we teach and interact with teenagers in order to help them do that.

The Teenage Brain Thing has a lot to offer middle and high school educators. I can't wait to work with you.
