Move Your classroom From Chaos to Calm 

Managing Student Behavior in the 21st Century

Does this Sound Familiar?

✔ Your first year teaching was a nightmare! You were not prepared at all to teach. You quickly found out that most of the teaching practices that you were taught in undergrad were not applicable to an urban classroom.

✔ You feel like your students hate you. The other teachers think you're a joke because your classroom is a zoo. Your principal is breathing down your neck every day.

✔ You've tried different strategies to refocus your students and get them to stop talking such as a clap they repeat when they hear. Nothing seems to be working! You've started to dreading going to school everyday and battling with the students.

✔ You bought a book and was hoping for more real life scenarios, specific situations, detailed suggestions. Instead you got generalities repeated over and over from one chapter to the next without any real "how to".

The book you bought provided nothing that you had not read, heard, or tried before. You feel like If you are a new teacher the classroom management books may be worth a reading because it's geared more towards elementary classrooms.

✔ Your classroom management had been exceptional last school year but now you're having a hard time with your new group of students. You want to know what to do about students who decide to play around without escalating the issues further.

If any of these statements have you " Nodding your head and saying yes!" then keep reading - you're in the right place, my friend.

What it would feel like to manage your classroom without chaos erupting in the first 30 seconds  of class!

  •  Finally going to school without stressing out about things that could go wrong

  • You get to give instructions - and students raise their hands instead of shouting out

  • Fulfilling your dream of  having a classroom that you can call your own

You're ready to get your classroom under control but you're afraid of failing.

You're asking yourself questions like....

Your students are running your classroom. You've been put on an improvement plan. You've read the blogs and popular recommended classroom management books, trying to piece together how to implement an effective classroom management plan but you feel like it's getting worse and nothing is working.

  • How can I improve my classroom management when I don't have the parents support?
  • I'm in a Title 1 school with mostly blacks, Hispanics, and ELL students: what if I can't connect with the students?
  • Parents have become far too disrespectful, and their children are even worse: how is this course going change that?
  • I've read most of the blogs on classroom management and still struggled with discipline all year long: how is this course any different? 

I know, there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you're looking for solutions for classroom management. If you don't have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make the same mistakes, get off track, and never reach the goal of implementing an effective classroom management plan. Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all! 

This is why I've created my step - by - step course, Managing Difficult Classrooms.

Managing Difficult Classrooms

An online course that will teach you how to connect with students, create realistic expectations, manage student behavior, and implement an effective classroom management plan that meets the needs of students in your classroom.

Hi I'm Michelle and I'm obsessed with helping teachers improve their classroom management.

I started providing professional development for teachers after seeing the lack of quality resources for teachers. 

Soon I had a few clients, but I knew so many other teachers could benefit from this.

I created this course because my classroom management improved and I believe other teachers can effectively manage their classrooms with the right guidance and support.

I'm excited to see how this course changes your classroom!
