A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As an educator, I know firsthand how challenging our job has become because of the increase in anxiety, anger and aggression in our students. My collaboration with educators like you who are trying to teach students who are dysregulated led to the creation of this seminar. Students who react or overreact in ways that are unexpected cause a disruption to the entire class. Teachers often find themselves spending too much of their time managing one or a few students in the class and feel that the other students are not getting their attention. They also may feel unprepared to deal with the emotional outbursts of students. Not to mention they will likely have one or more students in their class who have mental health issues. If this sounds familiar, then I invite you to join me as I share practical techniques, strategies and tips you can immediately apply to improve student behavior.

Anger, anxiety and aggression may be disruptive in your class but they come from different sources and they require different tools. In this seminar, the keys to more effectively managing student behaviors related to anxiety, anger and aggression, whether you are teaching in-person or virtually, will be shared.

My goal for the day is for you to leave the seminar with many new, practical tools that can help you work with students who demonstrate anger, anxiety and aggression in the classroom or online. When we are faced with these challenges, we can feel defeated and burned out. This seminar is designed for you to walk away with strategies to improve student behaviors, increase positive interactions and to prevent burnout of hard-working teachers.

Please join me to strengthen your toolkit, avoid common pitfalls and leave with new resources. I am excited to help you add new strategies to help improve the behavior of your students!

Jennifer Rogers
