The EMPOWERED training was a life-changing experience. It helped me find and own my power. It helped me heal, so I can truly be of service to others. My teachers Leah and Shelby are incredibly humble, kind, and funny, and they helped me see my own light. Words cannot express the growth and wisdom this training has brought into my life. I feel confident. I feel ready. I feel empowered.
Student, Empowered Program
The Empowered Program with Leah has given me all of the missing pieces of information I lacked with other teacher trainings. I felt the entire program was beautiful and cohesive and surpasses other YTT programs I attended. Leah is an articulate and organized teacher who has clearly thought out the contents of the Empowered Program to give students a well-rounded education. She is just a beautiful and gifted teacher.
