FirstDay Learning – Virtual

To be supportive, teachers need support. This course provides teachers with physical, mental, and emotional self-care strategies, because at FirstDay Learning we know that a burned out teacher can’t help anyone at all. Participants will learn ways to collaborate with peers, and formulas for reaching out to administrators in positive ways. Strategies for building on strengths and new ways to ask for and receive support will be explored.

Understanding Behavior: ABC Easy as 123

It will examine the sequence of how behaviors occur, and then understand strategies to use within the classroom to shape behavior. Teachers will leave with antecedent strategies to take with them to use in their classroom to increase appropriate behavior and decrease challenging behaviors.
