Are you tired of the constant struggle?
Even if you’ve got the basics of classroom management down, trying to get our students to be responsible, work hard, focus, and respect each other (and you) can often feel like fighting a losing battle.
Disrespect, apathy, blank stares - it's certainly not what we anticipated when we got into teaching.
No, we dreamed about leading passionate discussions with students who were excited about learning.
We imagined ourselves building meaningful relationships that enabled us to make a real difference in our students' lives and create a classroom culture of respect, trust, and responsibility.
But maybe you're wondering if this was all a pipe dream. Is it even possible? Or are today's kids simply too hard to deal with?
Don't give up, my friend. It's not impossible. But maybe we need to change our approach.
What if we could overcome our students' apparent lack of motivation by implementing simple strategies that truly engaged students, inspired them to work hard, and developed their personal responsibility,
What if we really could inspire mutual respect and responsibility by teaching our students the valuable social skills and character qualities they may be lacking?
What if we didn't have to let our students’ antics drive us to frustration but instead wielded an irresistible blend of compassion and strength that garnered our students’ respect and inspired them to rise to a higher standard.
What if you could help your students catch a glimpse of their own potential, so that, rather than constantly butting heads, you & your students actually worked together to accomplish great things?
Did you say that'd be AMAZING?
Well, you’re in the right place.

When you join Beyond Classroom Management, you’ll learn how to maximize the progress you’ve already made, engaging your students, inspiring them to reach their full potential, & instilling important character qualities like respect, responsibility, & a strong work ethic – all the things you wanted to do when you became a teacher.
And the result? You’ll finally get to enjoy a peaceful classroom full of cooperation, mutual respect, rich discussions, and strong relationships. Your students will be more focused, more engaged.
They’ll see their potential and work to achieve it. And you might even discover that they look forward to coming to class.

Respect, responsibility, and engagement - three things we all want to experience in our classrooms.
But do you find building that kind of culture easier said than done?
Maybe you're dealing with arguing, rudeness, and tattling - and you don't know how to help your students get along.
Maybe it's disrespect or even outright defiance - and you wonder how on earth you're supposed to get them on board.
Or maybe you've got some apathetic students who won't put forth the effort - and you're at a loss as to how to motivate them.
In any case, what you're doing is only getting you so far, and you're running out of ideas.
That's why we've created Beyond Classroom Management - to give you the tools and strategies you need to tackle these challenging issues and cultivate a culture of respect, responsibility, trust, and genuine engagement.
Can you imagine all your students treating each other - and you - with genuine respect?
How amazing would it be if your students looked forward to your class and couldn't wait to get to work?
And how great would it feel to see your students take responsibility for and solve their own challenges, even mediate their own conflicts?
That's exactly what we'll work towards in Beyond Classroom Management - and, I promise, you'll start seeing results faster than you might think.

"It was filled with wonderful ideas, suggestions and most importantly (for me) examples. I also love that I can go back and review what I learned and listen whenever I need or want to."
"I really appreciate all the very specific suggestions and the encouragement that anyone can have a well managed class."
"I love the emphasis on dealing with the heart of the student, administering grace while running a well-structured and ordered classroom."
*This doesn't mean your classroom needs to be perfect (whose is!?), but this does assume you already have a basic understanding of the classroom management skills needed to keep order and control. That way we can go beyond mere classroom management and dive into classroom leadership - truly inspiring your students and creating that culture of respect, responsibility, and engagement.
If you are struggling to keep order, we recommend starting with Classroom Management 101, which will be exactly what you need to regain control and build a strong foundation for an effective classroom. Don't worry. We'll still be here when you're ready. 🙂
I always wanted to be teacher, but a few months in, I realized teaching was a whole lot harder than I thought it would be. Too many of my students just weren’t listening to me; many were outright belligerent. My confidence plummeted, and as much as I hated to admit it, I wasn’t enjoying teaching. Instead, I felt like a failure in my own classroom.
But God wasn’t done with me. Through sound advice, a bit of trial and error, and much prayer, I gradually learned to keep my students’ attention, and I started to believe I could actually do this.
As I stopped living in fear of the next problem, I began to look forward to teaching. And while I loved those ah-ha moments when my students finally got how to solve equations, the truest joy came from watching God change lives through me.
No matter what challenges you’re facing, God wants to use you in your classroom. You’re in the right place. Let’s dive in.
