Gray Matters courses are energizing and would benefit anyone wanting to improve their lifestyle.

Kim is a passionate educator and consultant who has done extensive research in education. Her Gray Matters courses are energizing and would benefit anyone wanting to improve their lifestyle. Her classes target educators, but I recommend Kim’s classes for any field.

Joan R.

You have to take it, it’s LIFE therapy.

I learned 33 different strategies to incorporate in my personal life and professional life.

I’ll continue doing Kim classes because they are more a therapy, and a release, reset than a class

Thank you, Kim!

I love ALL of your classes and they (you) help me become a better human being. 

Shannon B.

After taking Kim’s Essentials for Learning class not only am I a more effective teacher, but I’ve lost 11 pounds, my migraines have stopped… and I sleep better at night! 

I look at myself and my students in a totally different light. Because I have a deeper understanding of how our brains work, I’m now able to create positive change within them! 

Although it’s brain science, Kim makes it simple.  Best class I’ve ever taken.

Maria G.

I learned so much information about how important and amazing our brain functions!

Emily H.

One of the most amazing, energetic speakers I’ve ever listened to… amazing words… powerful messages!

Emily T.

I am surprised how engaged I was. It’s hard for me to sit still, but you made class interesting and engaging.

Kimberly A.

I LOVE your classes because they not only affect the way I teach but how I live my life 🙂 (Motivation class)

Cindy U.

Time goes by so quickly in your class!

Kyle R.

[I left with] Great hope and a wealth of information that will improve my health and my teaching!

Emily K.

A lot of great ideas and ‘WOW’ information! 

Susan D.

I really feel this is EXACTLY where I was meant to be this weekend…thank you 🙂

Heather G.

I use your research so much more than you know every day in my room!

I so appreciate you!  I use your research so much more than you know every day in my room!  I got 10+ so many ways to improve willpower.  

Molly P.

I got soooo much. I got material to chew on for weeks, months, and my life. Ideas for my boyfriend and I, his child, my community and my classroom..  A dose of adrenaline just being in class talking about it.

Darla M.

I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have met you!

I went on your website and watched tips on sleeping video..I hadn’t slept the past few nights.  I used one of your tips and slept all night!  Thanks again!

Diana H.

I was beyond inspired by Kim Bevill the Keynote Speaker.

I found Kim Bevill’s passionate talk VERY helpful!  She is so engaging and she has the research to show that movement helps our kids and our colleagues.

I expected Essentials for teaching, but I got essentials for LIFE–at work, home, for family, friends, and students!

Ryan F.

Not a boring, traditional class…Boy was I surprised in a fabulous way.  I was refreshed from the ideas in this class. You Rock!  Thanks, Kim!

Rebecca S.

I took the online class Fitness & the Brain. I found it very interesting & informative. After seeing results with children, this inspired me to get moving.

Kathy B.

Coming to class is about helping students. Not analyzing data!

Kara B.

You are energizing and so much fun…I didn’t look at my cell phone all day!

This is amazing! You should take this class even if you are done with credits.  Love it!


I love you Kim!!!! You have had a huge positive impact on my life and made me a better educator! I don’t have words for how grateful I am for your presence in my life!

Yantze Z.

Since leaving your class, I can’t stop talking about it, much less thinking about it.  I have spoken to colleagues and neighbors and even strangers about your class, oh, and most of all with my wife…

Joseph D.

I got an entire new perspective on how to teach my students.  I am so excited to go to school on Monday and try everything!

Just wanted to let you know I’ve been sleeping through the night since I listened to your video (3 Ways to Fall Asleep and Stay Asleep).  No more antihistamines and getting 7-8 hours sleep a night.  Thank you!!


I wish my family members would take this course!

Terry B.

I always enjoy your classes because they help me become a better teacher, parent, person…

Janet W.

You are the best – I am so thankful that you are you (not to sound cheesy) – I love that you love what you do and I’m so thankful that you share your research with us.

Jules M.

“Kim-infusion” is good for body, mind, and spirit!

Rachel N.

I heard great things about your classes through multiple people.

This was my first time attending one of your courses–I plan to come back! 

Sam A.

I literally felt like what you were saying was directed at ME!…You are an amazing spirit and I feel like I become more of a better ‘Me’ in every class I take of yours.  Your energy is truly contagious and I am so honored that I get to take your classes and learn and grow from you.


I immediately implemented Kim’s ideas:  My observation scores increased, grades drastically improved, and kids are excited to learn.  My best compliment came from my AP after an observation, “Your students are so excited and having fun that they don’t even know they’re learning!”

Carolyn M.

I expected to get a “boost” in my teaching, I got a “bang”, a big explosion instead…

Pat L.

This class came at a desperately needed moment in my life.

I needed credit, but it ended up being an awesome class!  Now I need to take more KB classes 🙂

Jason H.

Thanks, Kim. You are always so wonderful, and really are a true gift to your students – as an educator, friend, and therapist.

 I love your courses, and how I feel after I take them. You consistently provide a dose of much-needed positivity and courage to get me through not only my career as a counselor, but also through the curveballs that life seems to throw in our paths from time to time.


Kim’s classes are a MUST! So amazingly beneficial.

I got life lessons that have proven to be invaluable. No money could be charged to gain what I learned!

Kathleen G.

Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge in such an open, inspiring manner.

Cheryl H.

Thank you for your passion and enthusiasm.

I truly appreciate it. It is very refreshing to learn about something so important to my teaching as well as my own children.


I love Kim’s classes! They are packed with energy, enthusiasm, and positivity.

Geoffrey S.

I enjoyed every minute of the class–loved your stories, enthusiasm, and videos.

Brett W.

I will never forget the things I learned today!

Cathy S.

I love your energy, humor, and stories. Thank you! Thank you! I feel energized.

Amber L.

Most intellectually gratifying material ever (Music and the Brain).  I got light years smarter!!

Samantha H.

A ‘booster shot’ of the things that are best for my students that I sometimes forget.

Terri T.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class, and it has made such a huge impact on me and my perspective. I can’t wait to take another class!

Angie M.

I was delightfully surprised and then excited as your classes are fantastic for helping bridge brain based research into a functioning classroom. I am new to online learning and really found it effective and motivating.

Mary P.

I loved the class (Real World Projects and the Brain Online). Teaching  STEM and wood shop, your ideas reinforce the brain science behind the design/build concept I use. Thank you.

Donald M.

Kim was great and helped me refocus on what is truly important.

Essentials has changed me personally and I can’t wait to change my classroom!

Susan K.

I fully recommend taking this (Gender) class… It’s enlightening personally and professionally!

I wish I could carry you in my pocket for a week to have you reinforce everything you taught us.

Grace P.

This is life changing stuff!  It truly brought me from a place of stress and anxiety and worry to happiness.  This was a wellness retreat!  I can hardly wait to implement these ideas into my classroom and family.

Kristina D.

You have been gifted with a great teaching ability and sharing it with the world is making it a better place!

I didn’t look at my watch once! This class was 2-days!  I didn’t look at my watch once!  I loved the movement breaks!!

I was truly surprised that I wanted to hear every word you said…and it was online!  So I had to come to an onsite class–I get so motivated I brag about you all the time.

I came expecting a lot of dry brain research, but I got Research AND Energy AND Ideas AND Strategies to take to my classroom!

I didn’t know there was so much research about how to be happy… I’m happy to have learned so much that I can use for myself, my family, and my students.  I wish I had begun taking courses like this earlier in life!

Michelle L.

Thanks for a WONDERFUL class last weekend! It was just what I needed and I have been talking about it to everyone – friends, family, roommates – since I left.

Sydney S.

I think I found myself again. My outlook on life is brighter!


I wish my whole staff and administrators could have been here so that we could make building-wide change.

Bethany M.

There is so much info college education courses didn’t cover!

I learned so, so much and enjoyed hearing your wonderful lectures. 

Martha H.

I wanted to take the time to express my gratitude for all that your courses did for me. Your movement course helped shape our program and helped us help a lot of students. 

B. Slade

Everyone should be exposed to your information!  You are fabulous!  Keep making the world a brighter place!

I feel cheated that I did not have this information as a teacher/counselor until now. I think of the students I could have supported with this info and it frustrates me….. But I will start immediately I will be using movement, I will be bringing the concepts to Angevine! Thanks again- Happily, it does not hurt that much to type– just pretty much every other movement!


Boulder Teacher

Thank you so much Kim for always bringing a smile to my heart!

Janelle H.

Everytime I hear you speak I change my life for the better.

Caroline C.

Wow! What an impact you made!

There has never been a time in the history of this BOCES when the teachers and administrators have wanted to have a previous presenter back!  Kudos to you!!

I am also happy to send you the responses I received about the training – it was the best ever and the first time people walked away actually wanting to schedule more!  I could go on and on about all of the great things happening since your presentation!

I’m a better counselor because of you… Thank you, Kim!

Your courses give so much more than just great information backed by research. You always help me keep things in perspective in all aspects of my career and life.

I’m a better counselor because of you, and I’m healthier (physically and emotionally) because of you.


Love every minute of your classes. I find myself using ideas from your classes all the time!

Amy P.

So many ideas that are easily applicable to anyones life to reduce stress.

Abbey L.

As always, a great day of learning! I can’t wait to take your other courses.

Sue L.

I gained learning, therapy! Putting together pieces of old and new knowledge, [like] group counseling. A blessing that I found this class!  Thank you!

Jaime C.

I am highly interested in ALL your classes as they are applicable both personally and professionally.

I so appreciate you, your energy, your knowledge, and all you do.

Heather O.

I got ideas, connections, understandings, inspiration, energy, and an amazing two days that ‘moved the needle’. 

Stacy W.

Thank you again and again–so applicable for me personally and professionally.

Suzanne S.

So much research based info!  Thank you for backing up what you say!

Kelsey R.

I got tons of ideas on how to help my students & own children. I wish I had the same energy as Kim! Such an awesome presenter and teacher!

I had a blast…I have a new way to evaluate my life.

Thank you so much. I know I need to be better in lots of areas and now feel like I have a shot.


Love your spirit and zest for teaching and life in general.

Jason H.

Thank you, Kim, for your class this last weekend.  It helped me “reset” my brain!

JoAnne L.

Kim, First, I need to tell you that this was a great class (Memory and the Brain). So many of the things you talked about memory related to me personally and professionally.  I have started applying ideas in my life and have plans to apply to my work as a speech/language pathologist in an elementary school in two weeks when I return to work.  Thanks!

Marla W.

I have been taking Kim’s classes for over a decade.

Kim’s classes gave me such a wonderful set of ideas to change my existence!  Hopefully changing my whole family’s life for the better.


Kim really inspired me to BE MYSELF while getting back to teaching this week & seriously, I can FEEL my effectiveness skyrocketing!


I loved hearing Kim Bevill talking about building relationships and connections!  It was refreshing and energizing!

You always give me amazing strategies to use with my class.  You have changed my teaching and my personal life in SO many ways for the better! 

Julie P.

I say, ‘Do it!  Take the class.’ It’s so worth the time, and you feel so ‘good’ after. 

Krystle H.

Your powerful presentation and so very personable instruction took the subject over the top….and DID meet and exceed my hope and prediction for a 50% improvement in memory by the end of the class!! You offer an extremely professional class, enhanced by energy and personality that make the topic truly come alive.  You are really one amazing woman, and I am so grateful that I found you!!!

Stephanie C.R.

Thank you once again for taking time out to invest your experience and knowledge by giving this live seminar…it was great!  What I liked most is that it was encouraging, and gave me energy and excitement as to how I would implement this understanding-THANK YOU!

This film is the result of what I learned at your Synchronicity workshop several years ago. This is my dream come true!!  Thank you.


I have taken many of your onsite classes, as well as a workshop at my school. I just want you to know that I am enjoying this (online) class. I wasn’t sure if I would like it compared to the in-person class. I like that you are speaking throughout along with the powerpoint slides. Your interaction and perspective is the strength of your classes. I also like that I can go back now and revisit some things to let it sink into this “aging” brain. The links for games and info are great too. The games are fun and at times challenging!

Susan C.

200% More Than I Even Hoped For…or 300%!! It is just an incredibly energetic and informative class!

You Are The Only Class I Look Forward To!

This was truly a mind blowing/ mind clearing/ mind energizing class and I am so excited to work on my mindfulness and using the 6 things to better my life physically, mentally, and physically.

Dawn M.

I absolutely love taking Kim Bevill classes. Information is always research based and very practical. Kim is very easy to talk with, informative, and fun!

Stephanie F.

I took this class in order to improve myself, in hopes to help the students in my classroom and to move up on the payscale. I could see you every week, you give me so much motivation!

I came expecting to do a lot of movement and get technical info about the brain. I expected to just get through it and not really enjoy it. I got… an experience where I hung on every word like I’ve never done in a class in my life and found I actually enjoyed the movement.
