Are you struggling with....
* Flat-out disrespectful students that almost drive you to tears?
* A few troublemakers that keep seeming to derail your otherwise happy teaching experience?
* Apparent apathy, blank stares, and the feeling that hardly anyone wants to put forth any effort?
You certainly weren't anticipating this when you got into teaching.
No, you dreamed about leading passionate discussions with students who were excited about learning.
You imagined yourself building meaningful relationships that enabled you to make a real difference in your 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?
What if we could overcome their 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 getting your students to take responsibility, work hard, focus, and respect each other (and you) didn't have to be a constant struggle?
How would it feel for you & your students to WORK TOGETHER for a change?
Did you say “amazing”?
Well, you’re in the right place.

*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. 🙂

"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."
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.
