this past year, with all of the focus on the common core learning standards
and annual professional performance review (APPR), many teachers, mental
health workers, and principals have expressed the desire to integrate
social and emotional learning into your classroom practice and school
culture while meeting the requirements for State and Federal mandates.
is also the ever-present concern over the issues of bullying, aggression
and intolerance that exist in all schools.
What I’m seeing and hearing is that even though you know how
important it is to support and nurture your students toward achievement
while creating safe and bully-free schools, at times it feels as if the
external pressures put upon you, make it increasingly difficult to do so as
effectively as you would like.
I know that the stresses you feel and the frustration you live with many
days of the school year will not change unless you take action to change
how you respond to the new reality of school reform. You have to embrace the potential to
teach pro-social skills while building a classroom community where bullying
is minimized within the systems changes being implemented. People have told me they do not want or
need a new curriculum or complicated program but instead are looking for a
new consciousness of how to create safe and civil schools. It is time to
return to the passion you once felt when you went into the educational
field by reframing what you do every day
(making a difference in the lives of your students), and how you do
it (by creating safe and civil schools).
why I’m announcing my very first Motivating Your Students to Succeed
Webinar, where for 3 weeks you will have the opportunity to learn
strategies that will inspire you in implementing an emotionally safe
learning culture for your students that will motivate them to succeed.
vision to offer this type of program came from numerous conversations I had
over the last year with teachers, principals and school mental health
professionals. Many of my colleagues encouraged me to consider offering a
webinar or teleconference in lieu of an on-site institute or workshop as a
cost-effective and further reaching strategy. I have decided to offer The Motivating
Students to Succeed Webinar and I am inviting you to join me on my very
first one. I have priced this to
make it affordable while being motivating, thought-provoking and
practical. As a participant, after each
phone-in, you will be able to download a recording of each module with a
manual for implementation.
session will begin with a 45 minute talk followed by a 15 minute question
and answer session. I am excited as
I look forward to working with you in this program that represents the last
25 years of my social culture building work in schools and classrooms. It’s time to celebrate what we do every day
as significant adults in the lives of our students and The Motivating Your
Students Program is a great place to start.
