Our workshop series, Education by Design is a framework based on sound research, and clinical and educational experience. This framework is designed to give educators a reference point when working with students on matters that affect academic performance and behavior in the classroom. The goal of these workshops is to apply research-based insights to discover your own strengths and those of your students to maximize your effectiveness in the classroom. These workshops will provide step-by step strategies for immediate application.
By understanding your student’s personalities and the motive and drive behind student behavior, we are better able to adapt our interactions to meet their social emotional and academic needs.
We need to “Reach Them to Teach Them”.
“Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.”
