In my 32 years as an educator, I’ve discovered that many educators leave education during their first 5 years.  Their main reason is due to discipline struggles.  They haven’t been trained with  proven strategies designed to create consistency. They see many models in elementary classrooms based on the “one-size-fits-all” approach from the industrial age. As these elementary students move up to middle school and high school, that “one-size-fits-all” model no longer fits. Those students have an entitlement attitude that sabotages content-area instruction.  They need consistency from educators, but many times the educators are too busy dealing with discipline challenges. 

I believe educators need clear, practical strategies to take back their classroom instructional time!  Time to Teach™ research-based strategies do just that!  They enable educators to gain back up to 5 hours a week of instructional time.  They reduce the number of decisions made daily from about 3000 to 1000, which reduces stress.  The atmosphere becomes conducive to learning and changes into a caring, respectful community.

With these practical strategies in place, educators will be living out Madeline Hunter’s quote, “Kids don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care!”  Please contact me today to find out more.
