Teacher Professional Development

"We got some good responses from staff about our latest teacherprofessional development workshop. Two actually called and said that they really got some good information out of it....very unusual ;-)   I thought that it was very useful....I have never seen a trainer give instant feedback to the staff the way that you did. I thought that that piece was unique and on really target for front line staff. It was interesting to see who stepped up as leaders in the group...very telling. I was impressed with the participation that you were able to get from the group! I liked your hands on approach.... can't wait to have you back!"

how to stop bullying, continuing professional development

Breaking the Bullying Circle
(Effective Bullying Solutions)

This program is only for schools that are truly looking to learn how to stop bullying entirely. This program stops bullying by training educators to:

  • Recognize the signs of bullying before they become worse
  • Teach their students effective techniques to avoid being bullied
  • Be powerful and responsible and have a cleaning up conversation when they accidentally and unknowingly create a victim who will eventually turn into a bully

An adult bullies a child accidentally -> child feels diminished and a loss of power is created -> child leaves classroom feeling weak -> child looks for a way to get power back -> victim becomes bully.

The adult has the power to stop this before their child leaves their classroom and becomes a bully. It's time to admit the truth. Some adults accidentally bully a child. Now is the opportunity to be responsible, powerful and brave. Take action. Call or email now.
