Jim Kestner will present his nationally recognized program for helping experienced teachers overcome classroom management challenges across a variety of grades and subject areas. The program empowers teachers to build self-respect, self-discipline, and responsibility in students, equipping them to overcome roadblocks that prevent students from responding to traditional approaches. Experienced teachers will be encouraged to share challenging circumstances from their own classes, which will form the basis of discovering ways to tap into students’ intrinsic motivation for making their own choices, finding ways to feel important, and finding satisfaction in school settings. The program focuses on helping youth find success in typical scenarios for failure, ultimately empowering them to respect themselves and others, discipline themselves to work toward long-term goals, and take responsibility for their actions.
Registration includes a catered lunch and a follow-up session in the spring!
