Teacher Classroom Management Workshop, Training/Webinars
Are you a teacher that is stressed to the max with challenging thoughts questioning your career decision of becoming a teacher in today’s world? When the music changes, so does the dance. As we can all agree today’s children come with a host of challenges. Inner city urban schools have often appeared as being infused with complex social and inequality issues, overworked and overwhelmed teachers who are stressed and burned out. As a result, teachers are leaving their jobs as quickly as they began due the strains of classroom management. Parents are having a difficult time raising the adolescent teens in which behaviors are spewing into the classroom environments. Students, many from impoverished communities, bring to the classroom dysfunctional pyscho-social affective behaviors which leave teachers in an ominous environment. Poor classroom management results in a reduction of teacher effectiveness, loss in instructional time, decreased productivity by both teachers and students resulting in low student achievement as evidenced by test scores. Teachers are no longer feeling that they are the masters in their domain, the classroom. Teachers desire classrooms wherein students are behaving respectfully, following instruction and the environment itself nurtures academia. Student are more inclined to challenge themselves and teachers look forward to waking up each day and getting to work to teach and prepare our children to embrace learning. Research has proven that self-regulation is connected to academic success and teachers are the most important figure on students learning to thrive and grow.
Well-constructed and organized classrooms have the potential to encourage student’s self-regulation. Students and teachers exchange positive interactions, teachers will learn how to apply M.E.T., (Motivational Enhancement Therapy) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (R.E.B.T). techniques to produce positive measurable outcomes resulting in teachers having control of his/her classroom while students embrace the challenge to learn. These workshops/webinars will help to reduce students from entering youth detention and jail systems, significantly decrease high dropout rates, improve Teacher performance, reduce burnout, reduce high turnover rates, make learning and teaching enjoyable and most importantly improve students’ academic test scores and graduation rates!
If you are a middle school teacher, I do empathize with you and I am very cognizant regarding the behaviors that exist within this population, for I have worked in Public, middle school and alternative schools. Middle school students whom are experiencing hormonal surges are seeking self-identity and finding their place in an adult world. The challenge of puberty often comes with an imbalance of self-identify to peer- influence. Youth appear to be in love with testing of limits and pushing of boundaries. Coming out of impoverished homes and communities they’re often seeking approval, acceptance and discipline as they struggle with having to make adult decisions albeit exhibiting childish behaviors. They’re often viewed as being problematic and disruptive students that create daily chaos in a learning environment whilst really screaming for “help”.
