Instructor Spotlight

Polly Edwards & Michon Willman

Learn more about Polly and Michon’s upcoming classes on page 15.

Hi! I am Polly. I am a Life Coach, a wife, a mother, a friend, a healthcare professional, lover of life and entrepreneur. My goal for each aspect of my life is to present myself in life’s situations as someone who honors others based on where they’re at in their lives at any given moment. Coaching has defined for me the importance of developing meaningful relationships and through those relationships building trust. If I choose to stay to myself this approach dramatically limits my ability to find richness and my purpose in life. Coaching has helped me to better understand that I have many gifts, strengths and talents unique to me. Throughout my lifetime, I have defined myself by weaknesses or what I’m not good at rather than honoring my strengths and talents. Through the ability to see things differently I minimize my weaknesses and apply my gifts, strengths and talents. Through the vehicle of “life coaching” I have found joy and a sense of peace. With Vivashe, I share my open perspective and relationship skills. I am passionate about creating connections that provide the seed for relationships to grow with other women-- no matter what they aspire to do. I believe we find success in being accountable for our relationships, actions, attitudes, beliefs and outcomes, which means making a commitment to do something greater now and in the future for ourselves. My Coaching Philosophy: My hope is that through life coaching I impart my learning to other women. It’s fulfilling when someone I work with finds new meaning, deeper happiness and they feel empowered to approach their lives differently. Life Coaching is taking life’s moments and applying simple steps to realizing we can live beyond our self imposed limitations. Life’s a journey that will bring ups and downs all of which are necessary for us to discover our best life and to live in true joy. For me it is my way of living AWESOMELY!

Hi! I am Michon. I am a Life Coach, wife, mother, friend, teacher, lifelong learner and entrepreneur. My favorite ways to engage are through collaboration, learning and teaching. Many of the choices I made in my life are similar to those other women face. We can grow from a conversation with each other. We often put others first and forget to take time to dream, imagine and think about ourselves. Every day is a work in progress and that’s ok…it is just important that you are living your authentic life. My passions for travel, friendship and family are matched only by my desire to unite women to improve themselves and make a difference in their lives and the lives around them. Life experiences, relationships and life coaching has helped me realize that it is about the journey and the richness that we find along the way. It’s OK to make choices for yourself. I know the importance of aligning priorities and defining personal strengths. So many of us feel our jobs define us, and that’s not it. It’s our strengths. That’s what Vivashe is, finding your strengths and getting more of what you want in life. My involvement with Vivashe was inspired by the energy of collaborating with and hearing the challenges and successes of like-minded women. I could see the value and importance in rich relationships and friendships with other women. We are every woman…No Super Mom or Wonder Women; we are women that want to make connections. That’s why it’s so important for us to be approachable and engaging. The opportunity to help women pursue change, learn, grow and live richer lives by attaining their goals is what replenishes me. Together we can make change and not be afraid to show vulnerability. I believe in: Laughter. “I really believe it’s important to find humor in every event, to be able to laugh about it and grow from every situation.” My Coaching Philosophy: Listening and being completely attentive from my heart; with a fresh approach you can design your path so you are living your dream. My intention is to offer a fun, rewarding and uplifting experience.

We’ll let you know what we expect, how we will promote your classes and do all we can to help you succeed. You’ll receive an instructor’s handbook with all the practical details you need to know, feedback from class participants and appreciation for your efforts. But it’s not just about Community Ed, it’s about you contributing to your community to make it a better place to be and your own personal growth.

We can’t do it without YOU! Call us at 952-226-0080. Let’s get together and talk possibilities.

Guidelines and Procedures Questions?

Call 952.226.0080 during office hours (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or email us at CommunityEd@priorlake-savage.k12. mn.us

Be an “Early Bird”

Prompt registration helps avoid disappointment when classes fill quickly or have to cancel due to low enrollment, only to find that late registrations would have allowed the class to run. Early registrations also make it easier if we need to contact you for any reason before your class begins.

Refunds

Your money will be refunded if your class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. If you choose to cancel your class registration, to be eligible for a full refund we need to receive your request no later than 4:00 p.m. five (5) business days prior to the first day of class. Cancellations for classes with supply fees must be received five (5) business days prior to the first day of class unless otherwise noted in description. Refunds of supplies are not issued after that time due to commitments made to instructors. Cancellations received after five business days will be subject to no refund. A $10 processing fee will be deducted from any refund.

Discounts

Adults (55 & over) receive discounts when noted in class pricing. All UCare Minnesota members may receive a discount of $15. If the class is less than $15, it is free. UCare Member ID must be provided at the time of registration. Sign up with a friend to receive 10% off your total up to $15. Discount must be requested at the time of registration. The friend discount is offered online and will be applied at the payment screen. The same class must be in your shopping cart in order to receive discount.

Satisfaction Guarantee

Please call the Community Education Office at 952.226.0080 if you are not satisfied with any class or activity in which you participated.

28

Cancellation

Community Education reserves the right to withdraw a course due to lack of enrollment or loss of a suitable facility. If we have to cancel a class, every effort will be made to contact all the participants who preregistered. Please include on your registration form a phone number where you can be contacted during the day. Community Education assumes no responsibility for reaching registrants who do not provide an accessible daytime phone number. When ever possible messages will be left on voicemail/answering machines. If an email is provided at time of registration, notifications will also be sent to the address provided. Classes may be cancelled due to inclement weather or for other unavoidable reasons. These sessions are made up whenever possible. If school closes during the day due to bad weather, Community Education will cancel all activities. Call 952-2260080 for evening or weekend cancellation information.

Are You In?

Yes - unless you hear from us. Community Education does not mail class confirmations. If you have an email address at the time of registration, a confirmation will be emailed to you. If you do not hear from us, assume that you are in the class and that it will be held at the time and place indicated. We will contact you by phone or mail if there is a change. Please list a daytime phone number so we can reach you if a class is cancelled. If there is a last minute change, signs are posted at each site with your class information on it such as class title, room numbers and times of classes.

Participant Waiver

Registration for any class waives all rights and claims for any and all injuries from whatever cause suffered by participation in activities.

Privacy

The information requested on the registration forms will be used to verify eligibility as well as determine staff, facility and equipment needs. Your registration information may be provided to school district staff, volunteers, instructors, the school district attorney, insurer and auditor.

If you object to having your picture used, please notify the Community Education Office at 952226-0080 each time you register.

Non-endorsement Policy

Prior Lake-Savage Community Education contracts with specialists in their fields who are interested in presenting classes in their areas of expertise to the community. We do not endorse the opinions or business affiliations of the instructors. All financial seminars are carefully screened to ensure they are strictly informational in nature. Although most seminars are presented by professional financial planners, the design is nonbiased and non-sales oriented. You will not be pressured to make a purchase or meet with sales people. We prohibit the direct distribution of flyers, pamphlets or marketing materials that promote specific products, services or companies. We do, however, offer you the opportunity to receive an instructor’s business card or you can ask for more information should you have additional, specific questions that go beyond the content or time frame of the seminar. We hope your participation in these programs will be enjoyable. For questions, call Leanne at 952-226-0082.

Special Requests

If special assistance/accommodations is needed to participate in a Community Education Program, please contact us at least 2 weeks prior to start of program to allow enough time for special accommodations.

We are excited that you have taken some time to explore our catalog to learn more about the programs and services we offer to hundreds of lifelong learners in our district. We strive to offer innovative programs for students of all ages. Due to the influx of new housing developments in both Prior Lake and Savage, and families moving into existing homes within our boundaries, our district is continuing to experience unprecedented growth. This growth is putting pressure on our schools, which are also in use outside of school hours for Community Education activities. A new demographic report indicates we can expect 2,185 additional K-12 students over the next 10 years! Our schools belong to the community, so we formed a Facilities Task Force of community members who are charged with studying PLSAS’ enrollment and demographic data to identify needs, generate ideas and provide input to a Facilities Design Team to develop options to address those needs. We will be presenting those options to the community to collect more input and then refine the options prior to presenting them to the School Board for action this spring. Public Input Sessions • Thursday, March 2, 6:30 p.m. at the District Services Center • Tuesday, March 28, 6:30 p.m. at the District Services Center School Board Listening Session • March 9, 6:30 p.m. at the District Services Center We hope you will engage with us throughout this process! Please be sure to bookmark the following page to stay abreast of facilities planning developments: www.priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us/growth. Be well, Teri Staloch, Ed. D. Superintendent
