A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Nothing can undermine learning and classroom climate, not to mention teacher morale, more quickly than frequent disruptive behaviors. When they are recurring they can steal up to 50 percent of instructional time. Many teachers attempt to solve classroom discipline problems with rules and penalties, but these approaches do little to build the productive classroom environments that they seek.

Fortunately, classroom disruptions can be eliminated. The solution rests primarily in preventing problems before they start, not merely trying to suppress the behavior, with compelling classroom procedures, and then using relational strategies to teach, encourage or correct behavior swiftly. These research-based approaches ensure that procedures become routine. It’s time to stop trying to control students and build attitudes, behaviors and relationships that support learning and lead to permanent behavior change.

I have guided hundreds of schools across the country to create unique, positive climates and cultures where respect and responsibility flourish and students feel welcome, safe and secure. I have an unrelenting commitment to today’s youth, especially those who are troubled or troublesome by virtue of their behavior. I am also committed to helping schools utilize approaches that lead to the success of all students. Let me help you learn concrete strategies to create a well-disciplined classroom through a positive and proactive teaching approach I know really works.

Sincerely,
Tricia Wells

P.S. The process, strategies and proven protocols I will be sharing in this seminar are research-based and have made a significant difference in hundreds of schools throughout North America.
