Teachers have amazing power for good in the lives of children. We need to trust our own powers, to hone our already considerable skills, to give proven methods a chance, and to trust in our own abilities to teach and our students’ abilities to learn. In the realm of discipline as well as in the realm of academics, truly it is time to teach!
Teachers have the hardest job in America. Among all the tasks that we juggle, two are paramount – curriculum and discipline. Neither is more important, nor can one be effective without the other. We give you the solution to effective classroom discipline and easy-to-implement differentiation strategies so that you can have more time to teach!
Our classroom management seminars are attended by new teachers, seasoned teachers, administrators, specialists, both special and general education teachers, and parents. Our seminar is especially popular with discipline committees and school-wide groups interested in improving student scores.
Our nationally recognized instructors teach innovative and highly effective discipline and differentiation strategies at seminars and education conferences, in schools and districts, and are helping teachers everywhere! You will find our seminars to be a breath of fresh air. Our “active duty” K-12 teacher-trainers live “in the trenches” on a daily basis and pride themselves in successfully using the research based strategies they teach to you in their own classrooms.
You will receive highly practical and proven strategies which can be immediately implemented when you return to your classroom. Teachers and administrators who evaluate our training say that we are redefining teaching and learning in schools by providing powerful, easy-to-use, teacher friendly strategies that immediately improve classroom behavior and that help teachers address diverse learning needs to promote motivation and a desire to learn in all.
