Responding to

A calm classroom, cooperative children, and a confident teacher

We know that might seem like an impossible dream. Especially when your current reality includes biting, hitting, swearing, running away, spitting, throwing chairs, ignoring instructions, crawling under tables during lessons or activities...

(Hopefully when you read that list you were thinking about child behaviors, not teacher behaviors!)

Challenging behavior gets in the way of learning, and it can make you feel angry, frustrated, or defeated.
There's no magic wand, but transformation is possible

We've helped hundreds of teachers create the classroom of their dreams, and we can help you, too.

We'll give you the tools and strategies you need to prevent challenging behavior before it starts, and respond effectively when challenging behavior does happen.

This course is perfect for staff development days, PLCs, or coaching groups - let us take care of the content and planning so you can focus on other things! 
I have certainly learned a lot from this course; it's difficult to summarize, as I have learned about myself as a teacher, I've learned more about developmental stages of children, the power of working with the family to help a child who is going through a difficult time, and lots of strategies for how to work with challenging behaviors. Thank you so much for providing this course!
I have already recommended this to several of my coworkers because of the tools, resources, and research this class provides. It's awesome!

So beyond helpful, it was engaging, easy to follow, and I really appreciate the handouts.
Wow, I can't decide what was most valuable! The whole course was amazing!
I understand now that I can respond to challenging behaviors in many different ways and I have a very full toolbox to use.
Even though I don't have challenging behaviors in my classroom, I gained so much from this course. I am working on adding more real choice for the students into my class. Also, I had never heard of positive descriptive feedback and I love it! My EA and I are working on using that rather than the traditional feedback. I do feel more confident as a teacher and I feel more confident as a mentor for my co-worker. I will also present some of these ideas to my parents. All of my students have IEP's and so many of these techniques will be helpful for the parents in understanding why their child acts the way they do.
