In this session, Rita will provide you with classroom-tested strategies to walk you through the process of connecting and redirecting to address the most challenging classroom behaviors. Based on Seigel’s theories on The Whole Brain Child, these strategies will give teachers the tools to manage their classrooms and get back to teaching. Expect to connect with Rita’s heartfelt and humorous stories and leave feeling empowered to create a classroom community which includes all of your students. If you are a new teacher, an administrator or an experienced teacher that just doesn't know what else to try, Rita's presentation will inspire and encourage you to look at things in a new way!
