When I walk into classrooms, I many times witness frustration—by teachers and students. It seems to permeate the room like smog creeping in on a bad air day in Los Angeles.
Why? It’s a great question with many different answers. Number one on the hit parade, however, is EXPECTATIONS. The teacher might know what he or she expects in terms of behavior but has never really taught the students what those expectations are and what the consequences of not meeting them is. It takes time, patience, and perseverance by all parties to teach and learn what is expected in the classroom— behaviorally and academically.
We can eliminate that frustration by teachers and students learning together. If you want to know more and, perhaps, obtain some assistance for you and your school, click on the Trainings page and check it out. Remember: If you don’t know, you can’t do!
