MaryAnn is known for her motivational seminars that not only inspire, but give teachers the specific strategies they need to make positive changes to increase students’ success in school, both academically and socially. She is the author of many books, including Transformative Teaching: Changing Today’s Classrooms Culturally, Academically & Emotionally; Respectful Discipline; Motivating the Unmotivated; Working with Difficult Parents; and Strengthen Students’ MINDFULNESS: Increase Your Students’ Self-Control While Reducing Anxiety and Challenging Behaviors, the digital resource handbook you will receive.
