Uniquely Qualified Instructor

Ernie Chapin is especially qualified to present this seminar. He has many years of teaching experience, most of those years working with difficult, disruptive and defiant students. He currently works in a juvenile justice center teaching classes with diversion, drug court and truancy offenders. His success with these students stands as a testament not only of his skills as an educator, but also his compassion and concern for all students, especially those that many in society have cast aside.

Ernie has shared his ideas and message with educators throughout the United States. His audiences consistently praise his commonsense, practical approach in dealing with difficult, defiant students. Ernie’s down-to-earth style, humor and real-life stories make his ideas clear and accessible to the audience. Ernie is the author of Motivating Your Underachieving Learners (Grades 3-12), the resource handbook each participant will receive at the seminar.

Join Ernie for this thought-provoking practical seminar. You’ll leave with proven strategies that you can utilize with challenging, disruptive, defiant students.
