Monumental Mission

As a school principal, your impact is wide and deep…

Serving your school community, solving simultaneous priorities (that needed resolution yesterday) and raising those benchmarks is a Monumental mission!

But it’s hard to release your classrooms, hallways and playgrounds from the white-knuckled grip of an increasing complex world…

Especially with LESS TIME… and MORE directives from local offices, phone calls from overwhelmed parents, and news reports that make your eyes pinball down the hallway…

But you’re not alone! And you CAN lead your school to that next level of success! 
Your vision is possible!

Hi! I’m Trish Keiller, M.S., Ed., founder, trainer, and coach at Roots Education.

With customized coaching (because no two schools are alike, and I love research and people!) and embodied, hands-on training, I help your teachers and students find more power, more joy, and more success in school (and beyond!).

Help your teachers (and students!) maximize their potential and thrive through professional learning experiences all geared to getting students LEARNING READY: 

  • Brain-Aligned Techniques

    engage focus, attention & self-efficacy

  • Mindfulness Practices

    support self-regulation & emotional well-being

  • Social Emotional Learning Strategies

    remove barriers, engage growth-mindset

  • Community-Building Habits

    cultivate healthy relationships that strengthen feelings of belonging & accelerate learning
