Meet Dr. Mike

Mike Longoria, a.k.a. Dr. Mike!, has a Ph.D. in early childhood education and has over 30 years of early childhood experience in the capacity as a Pre-K, kindergarten, and special education teacher, Head Start administrator, University professor, independent consultant, and curriculum developer.

Dr. Mike has keynoted early childhood conferences nationally and has conducted professional development for Head Start, PreK, TK, kindergarten, 1st grade, special education and dual language teachers across 25 states.  His innovative and original approach to integrating music and movement in the classroom will allow you to experience the joy it brings to learning, while creating neural pathways in the brain, “building muscles in young brains”.  Furthermore, this multi-modal approach ensures access and equity for ALL students.

Early childhood professionals leave Dr. Mike’s keynotes and training excited and aware of the importance of integrating music and movement within their instruction for the student’s cognitive, linguistic, physical, social, emotional, and academic benefit.  This form of “brain-base teaching” promotes social-emotional learning while bringing JOY to education.
