Here is a link to a campus pride index that rates colleges and universities across the US based on criteria about how safe they are for GLBTQ students.

What an amazing difference re-framing the conversation could make:

Behaviour Workshop - Proactive Strategies for Children with Challenging Behaviour

BC will be February, March & April, 2018

Having children in our classrooms who may not be cooperating, aggressive, inattentive, calling out, and not engaged in learning create environments that can become negative and draining.

Are you experiencing any of these issues??  If you are I would love to support you as part of our team.  With the SAVE YOUR SANITY workshops we not only provide you a full day of learning with peers but ongoing email support following the workshop.  I have tons of strategies to share with you and I would love to help.    ABOUT ME

In this seminar you will learn:

  1. Proactive strategies that can be implemented immediately in the classroom
  2. Strategies for anxiety
  3. You as a strategy
  4. Handling Stressful situations in a calm manor
  5. Executive functioning strategies for children
  6. Organization, communication, cognitive, social skills, goal setting and anger/oppositional strategies
  7. How to create a safe secure environment and to empower students to become a part of their learning community
