This course will examine research driven brain-based teaching and learning through the lenses of Trust Psychology and Growth Pedagogy. Trust Psychology examines and explains how a high level of trust results in a high level of success. Growth Pedagogy is a method and practice of teaching where every interaction leads to student growth. Through examining research and experience, participants will understand how a balance of psychological foundation and pedagogical implementation result in student success. Participants will reflect, make personal growth targets, and practice skills in four specific areas: classroom culture and social-emotional learning, delivering instruction, classroom management and teacher self-care.

His instruction provides a realistic and compassionate approach for those in low demographic schools (and everywhere), giving you tools and thought processes that you can use to shape a personal and reformative look at your teaching, and your relationship to your students. Highly recommend this workshop!”
