I appreciate the beneficial information
This was really good. Got some great ideas. I do teach in the early childhood classroom (Kindergarten to be specific) so some of these wouldn't work in my area. It would be great to have a webinar just for early childhood ideas. Thank you though. I learned a little more as I have heard others on this topic but it was more towards teaching boys in poverty.
Great information!
Very informative. As a counselor in a rural, poor school district, I see many of these issues very often.

This was a very informative webinar. I have used some of these strategies but I was happy with some great refreshers.
Nice work
