Come learn how to develop a fun-inspired approach to your business by learning improv comedy techniques to help you think fast on your feet, use your right brain, and use humor to manage stress and improve communication.

Be someone who plays well with others!
How We Help
We have a full schedule, who has the time?
Plan your schedule with us and we will customize the fun, recommending how to get the most out of your event- whether you need a 30 minute meeting humor break, a 2-3 hour workshop, or 1-2 day Humor Bootcamp! There’s no time NOT to have fun!
We have goals to reach and content to cover, isn’t fun counterproductive?
People learn better and retain more when they are having fun. Because humor reduces stress, holds attention and fosters teamwork and creative thinking, it maximizes both efficacy and efficiency!
We’re on a budget, how much does a good time cost?
Humor breaks come in a variety of price friendly “humor stimulus packages”. The bottom line is-if you are not having fun…you’re losing money! Stress is costly but FUN is a renewable resource!
Did you know a Humor Break is as necessary as a restroom break?
It’s true! Can you measure the impact of a restroom break on morale? Humor is equally necessary, it flushes the mental toxins!

Offered as one time classes, and multi day camps, where kids laugh with others and laugh away their fears. Shannon uses a variety of creative techniques to teach kids how using their voices in a confident and sometimes comedic way; leads to more friends, opportunities, and getting more yeses when asking for what they want (including from their parents!). Camps allow kids to craft a fun mini introduction and create a tiny talk with big impact on something they’re passionate about. Shannon provides kind and constructive feedback.

She’ll share her triumphs and challenges in a fun way that helps girls feel safe, accepted and not alone. Games and practical tips are infused with each class where individual differences are celebrated. Girls are empowered to value their self opinions over anyone else’s. Bring pets to class if desired, as they’re the best role models for healthy self esteem and unselfconscious play.

Every child learned to value herself and saw their magic through Shannon’s eyes and then their own. Shannon is a highly skilled and talented counselor. She’s compassionate, funny, and down to earth.

Kids learn how to access their intuition and to be a voice for animals and themselves. Our classes are interactive, fun-filled, life-changing experiences! Co-taught with Mayor Puppypants, Certified Therapy Dog and Canine Good Citizen. 🙂 And of course, he’s a rescue dog!
“We can’t decide who’s more excited when MayorPuppypants and Shannon visit our school! They teach the kids how to be respectful to all animals and take responsibility for caring for them . Shannon teaches with great humor and the Mayor brings smiles to all of our faces. We keep inviting them back because they’re programs are highly effective and fun.” – Sawgrass Lake Elementary School
“Shannon and MayorPuppypants are always a favorite at our Teach For America events! Shannon is a wonderful speaker and always teaches with games and fun . Every child is taught that of they can’t be kind to the stuffed animal dog, they cannot interact with Mayor Puppypants. She makes sure kids take animal kindness very seriously while also making it fun for them. We are grateful for their service.” – Perkins Elementary
Teacher Training & Team Building Programs
“Creating a Laughing Classroom”: Creative Brainstorming Sessions filled with games, contests, unique techniques and real-world challenges to solve with fun. Shannon Spring, M.Ed was both a teacher’s dream and worst nightmare and has taught in public and private schools, reaping her good and bad karma! Now she’s empowering teachers to enjoy their jobs again, and make learning the fun experience it should be for all.
Laughter in the classroom is too often absent and seen as misbehavior, rather than an asset and ally. Naturally, the humor in classrooms must be appropriate and purposeful. Savvy educators realize that our brains respond to humor. It’s a major source of stimulation, motivation and cooperation.
WHEN CHILDREN ARE LAUGHING…. THEY’RE LEARNING! They’re learning social and academic skills because the brain connects the information to positive experiences. Creating a laughing classroom captures your students’ attention, increases learning retention, reduces disciplinary problems and builds a sense of camaraderie in the classroom. We’re not talking about becoming stand-up comedians, just entertaining educators who are empowered to laugh and learn ways to impart wisdom with wit!
“Shannon’s teacher training programs are absolutely the best we’ve had! We got rave reviews from our teachers that her creative and Humorist program was refreshing and inspirational. Shannon gave the staff countless ways to educate and entertain their students while also maintaining order. We had a great time during her training sessions with us.” – Mason Preparatory School
