Rhonda Hamerslough-Koester | Founder
After working in many different areas of education and having a vast range of experiences I have landed in a place where I believe I can make a significant impact.
I am passionate about animals, humane education and the success of kids. I am committed to education and my great passion is to assist educational institutions in bringing social and emotional learning to their classroom. I help districts and schools create a culture that supports social emotional growth of their students through professional development, teacher SEL growth, outcomes and the Pawsitively Social Emotional Learning Curriculum.
I have had the privilege of being active in a wide range of professional experiences that include business, education, counseling, research, leadership, student assessment, curriculum writing, consulting, non-profits, dentistry, animal shelters and animal training. These experiences have afforded me the opportunity to help others in areas that I am passionate about.
I am a Southern California native and currently live in beautiful Missoula, MT with my amazing and supportive husband Douglas my shelter mutt Digger.
