Pam's Talks

“Life is One of Our Greatest Teachers”

Learning life’s most important lessons is important, and the earlier the lessons are learned, the better we become. These primary lessons have a greater impact and add more value leading to health, happiness, and productivity.

Dr. Cobler supports educators while teaching relevant, life-long topics for early childhood and elementary-aged children.


This educational and inspirational talk will have a lasting effect on teachers and other educators while Dr. Cobler shares serious life topics through playful, thoughtful stories through her traumatic injury and experiences as a former elementary teacher. Teachers will be motivated to lay a solid foundation, brick upon brick, to secure the success of the child’s learning pathway.


And, as a result, teachers will learn a three-part strategy to help children overcome obstacles at an early age and apply these strategies to real-life situations.

“Going Beyond Where We Are All Sitting”

Effective teaching meets the learning needs of each individual student. As instructors, we aim to help all of our students learn and succeed, individually and in groups. Effective teaching is the foundation of cultivating a passion for language arts at the earliest age possible.

In this fun and informational workshop, Pam will be sharing and modeling best practices for the classroom teachers in grades preschool to elementary grade levels.

Teachers will learn the elements of language arts, while focusing primarily on reading and writing. We all have our own stories and we all have somewhere we have been and somewhere we want to go, and this is not different for children-they need guidance and leadership. For this purpose, successful instruction and learning strategies will be included with the stories of relevant life-topics.
