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 students who often display an “I don’t care” attitude. He currently works in a juvenile justice center teaching classes with diversion 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 whom many in society have cast aside. Audiences consistently praise his common-sense, practical approach in dealing with difficult, disengaged students. His down-to-earth style, humor and real-life stories make his ideas clear and accessible. Ernie is the author of Powerful, Practical Strategies for Working Successfully with “I Don’t Care!” and Underperforming Students to Increase Their School Success (Grades 3-12), the extensive digital resource handbook participants will receive at the seminar.
Join Ernie for this thought-provoking, practical seminar. You’ll leave the seminar with proven strategies you can utilize with students who come to school or class with an “I don’t care” attitude.
