Are your teachers sending students to your office for minor behavior infractions? If so, this problem will not be solved with a chart for classroom-managed versus office-managed behaviors. Join Ryan Jeffery as he explains how you can empower your teachers with common practices that prevent 80% of the misbehaviors that occur in most classrooms. He will also address how you can teach them to respond to, de-escalate, and provide consequences for the 20% of misbehaviors that cannot be prevented in today's school climate. Ryan will share how to implement a 3-step process that reduces office referrals, makes teachers happier, and Administrators more appreciated. In Part 1 of this 2-part series, Ryan will discuss the first step in the process, forming a proactive behavior support team. He will explain the logistics of assembling your "behavior leaders," who will help to develop a culture of empowerment with your staff.

Great comparison between teachers and principals there still has to be ultimate consequences for students and everything can't be rewarded or changed. Discipline is has tough lessons as does life, not trophies for all.

Good perspective on how administrators view behavior management versus how teachers view it, and how these two perspectives can become more similar.
