A Message from

Rick Dahlgren

 and his Team of Experts

Dear Colleague:

Great strategies and ideas withstand the test of time, but society has changed, and so have the students we work within our schools. We face a variety of behaviors that steal our valuable teaching time every day.

The strategies you will learn in our Train-the-Trainer Institute were developed with a 21st-century focus, mindful of the children coming to our classes today. We promise to train YOU how to teach other educators what to do with repeatedly disruptive, non-compliant, anxious, or angry students. Furthermore, how to effectively deal with meltdowns, blow-ups, and serious situations. We will then teach you how to deliver this content to your staff at a high level.

We are excited to train you to become an expert trainer! You will provide doable and powerful ideas that are sure to help your staff successfully teach disruptive and challenging students using evidence-based strategies that work! You will teach strategies designed to prevent misbehavior as well as how to respond to misbehavior skillfully. Plus, we will teach you strategies for calming every classroom creating happy, safe, and comfortable learning environments! We will teach you how to go back to your staff and implement with high levels of fidelity and success!

If you and your staff are looking for specific ways to eliminate misbehavior and make your classrooms a very positive place, we encourage you to please join us in this extraordinarily active and interactive, Train-the-Trainer institute. We look forward to sharing our research-based ideas and enthusiasm for creating a classroom where all students succeed.

Are you currently using another program as well but want to take your school to the next level? You will be able to blend our training and strategies perfectly into your current district/school-wide system or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (or any other program out there!).

The Train-the-Trainer course is intense. First, your will see the polished presentation. Next, we deconstruct the training component by component, reteach, and then YOU will teach our team of nationally known experts. Cohorts from your training will provide feedback, as well as our team of expert trainers. A famous French moralist and essayist, Joseph Joubert, said “To teach is to learn twice.” The act of teaching by putting the learner in place of a teacher dramatically increases understanding and retention. You WILL BECOME an expert Classroom Management trainer for your school or district. Our model of training guarantees it!

Sincerely yours in education,
Rick Dahlgren and his Team of Classroom Management Experts

P.S. Nu Docendo discimus!
