Classroom Management

Being a teacher trying to deliver core instruction can be difficult when we have students who act out behaviorally in class. We will discuss evidence-based behavior practices as outlined in the LRBI (Least Restrictive Behavior Interventions) from the Utah State Board of Education (USBE). These practices are simple and inexpensive to implement and have positive outcomes for students and teachers. Classrooms are transformed into positive environments, suspensions and truancies are reduced and school culture improves.

Why We Need Youth Leaders NOW

I am on a mission to empower our students with important leadership skills. Why? Our children do not feel safe. We live in a world of untethered social media, where bullying runs wild, unrealistic images create unhealthy comparisons, and school shootings have come to be expected, no matter how big or small the school. With suicide rates on the rise and anxiety disorders and depression being diagnosed in unprecedented numbers, our kids are in crisis. I'm arming them with the tools to help them cope with these issues. I call them the Three C's of Leadership: Commitment, Courage, and Compassion. I'm teaching them to stand up, reach out, and lead - to be the one who can make a difference in somebody else's life.

WTF-What's the Function?

Behavior is communication, it happens for a reason and it has a function (WHY the behavior is happening and WHAT is the child receiving from it). We will use real-life scenarios and collaborate as a group to learn how to identify the function of problem behaviors. We will discuss how to match appropriate evidence-based interventions to the function to increase desired behaviors.

Antecedent Interventions-Preventing Problem Behavior

We will discuss strategies to prevent and de-escalate problem behaviors by exploring evidence-based antecedent strategies. Ecological conditions and antecedent events set the stage for problem behavior so we want to identify and alter those triggers. We will also discuss teaching replacement behaviors that get the same result as the previous problem behavior.

Adventures in Reading

We would like to present what we have learned as we implemented a whole new approach to reading in fifth grade. Based on research presented by Dr. Lance Hatch and information from the Conferring with Readers book, we decided to completely restructure our reading instruction, allowing for much more actual reading time at the students' independent reading levels. This has also provided us with time to confer with individual readers on a regular basis, informally assessing student fluency, comprehension, skills, and strategies. We have been able to discuss and monitor progress, growth, and goals with each student. We have seen incredible gains in their proficiency, motivation, and love for reading! We would be delighted to share this experience and what we have learned through this new adventure.
