When students feel safe, included, and appreciated, they enjoy school more; they blossom socially and academically. When students feel threatened or that they don’t belong, their minds shut down, they disengage, or they become discipline problems. Come learn proven strategies to create a positive classroom community to nurture academic and social and emotional learning (SEL). In this dynamic, interactive workshop, you experience the power of simple strategies to create positive classroom communities. Create a more interactive and caring class with energizing classbuilders. Build bonds and celebrate diversity with teambuilders. Students feel more cared about by their teammates and classmates. Join us to learn how to reduce violence and racism with easy-to-use strategies that reduce the psychological and emotional distance between classmates. Create a sense of belonging in your classroom where kindness and friendships can flourish. Experience first-hand how to transform your classroom into mutually supportive learning community.

Rave Reviews

“I really enjoyed this session. I have a lot of great ideas to take back to my school. I work across grades and really believe this will help achieve my goal of building a positive community!”
Quanna Wallace, K-4 Dean Of Students
“I love how we transitioned between classbuilding and teambuilding and content application. It was beneficial for us and our students will benefit from the portability.”
Helen Davis, Teacher
“Very engaging! Looking forward to using the teambuilding and classbuilding structures for fun and content!”
Kacy Boyett, 1st Grade Teacher

“Thank you for sharing this with all of us! I believe implementing these amazing structures, principles, classbuilding, teambuilding teams, management and social skill tools will change the lives of children all over the world as well as those who teach them. Thank you so much!”
Nikkie Hotze, 1st Grade Teacher
“Well worth coming to! Teaches content along with a variety of teambuilding, classbuilding, functional skills that adults and children need.”
Gina Landtiser, 2nd Grade Teacher
“While I know that creating a safe classroom that feels like a family environment is important I have not always created this environment because I did not feel that we could do non-academic teambuilding. I'm excited to do this now!”
