Do you ever get the feeling that you're connecting with some students well, but are missing others? Have you caught yourself repeating a student's name over and over, trying to get them to comply or even listen to your directions? Do you sometimes finish the day feeling frustrated and defeated?

Children are remarkable, complex, and sometimes challenging. The way we plan for them and react to their diverse needs can mean the difference between constant power struggles and smooth sailing. In this workshop, we will learn how to build consistent relationships with every child in your classroom. We will think about voice, energy, function of behavior, explicit strategies, and evidence-based programs.

Join us to develop your inclusive skills and realize the joy that is possible when we invest in our unique learners.
