It is my belief that what makes a great educator is one who is open to learning new ideas and willing to try a skill,l even if it is outside their comfort zone. Effective educators realize that no matter how long they have been in the field they can always learn something new. As educators, we are under increased pressure to develop repertoire of behavioral intervention skills that will allow us to meet the needs of all students, including students with serious behavioral problems, The usual methods, such as sticker charts and emphasis on students performance to gain rewards or sending students to the principals office, usually falls flat with underperforming students. It is critical to keep in mind that you cannot change anyone except yourself, but you can assist others to make their own changes. The good news is with the right help, students can learn to change their behavior. My seminars will teach you strategies to inspire students to want to change their behavior. This approach focuses on internal encouragement rather than external rewards and punishment. I will walk you through all of the steps and provide dozens of examples as well as demonstrate sound techniques and activities that can enrich what you are already doing in the classroom. I will offer suggestions that will support you in anticipating and addressing repeatedly and often overwhelming behaviors. You will learn realistic research-based strategies that will make a difference in how you respond to your students.
