In part two of Shevailier's Sheveliar's lecture, participants will learn the basis of "Mind-Mapping"-a method of note taking, memorizing, "brain streaming" and goal setting designed to stimulate the mind and increase one's potential.

She has presented at numerous venues including; ISTE conference, San Diego, Education leadership conference, Lake Placid, NYSATA Keynote, Tarrytown, and numerous regional and state wide professional development venues.


Shevalier is also co-author of: World Class, the Re-Education of America. Her expertise as an art teacher and artist has allowed her to share the "Art of Critique" and "Mind-Mapping" to benefit teachers and students of all content areas and of all ages.
