Hello, I am Stephanie Rothstein, the creator of CanWeTalkEDU.

CanWeTalkEDU was born out of my classroom. As a teacher, I used the True Colors Personality Survey (Ketterman, 1972) for almost 20 years. But I realized that there had to be more to do with the information to help others use this consistently throughout the school year. After giving many presentations on the topic at conferences around the world, other educators wanted to know how to use this in their own classrooms to help their students grow. I created this site to fill that need.

CanWeTalkEDU helps students learn about themselves, others, and how to be in teams. It also helps educators and other adults better understand their interactions, how to speak to one another and best practices for feedback. Come back to learn about ways to apply to curriculum, stay involved in growth challenges, share ways you have applied CanWeTalk with your teams and in your classroom.

This is also a place to connect with me if you would like more hands on training for your classroom or site.

Since this presentation, the survey link has been updated. Please use http://bit.ly/cwt_surveynew for the survey or complete it below.
