Mentors work with caseloads of students and families for at least two years, functioning as liaisons between home and school and striving to build constructive family-school relationships.

Classroom Management ER,
Target Audience: New Teachers. Schools with Unsatisfactory Ratings. Special Educators. Teacher Trainers. All educators interested in improved school climate and pupil performance.

Outcome: Improved test scores. Fewer referrals for behavioral problems. Satisfied, less stressed faculty. More positive school climate.
Description:This full day session offers educators an overview of the 7 major theorists that impact classroom management decisions, including extrinsic and intrinsic models. The emphasis is on preventing management problems with organization, understanding of students’ needs, a firm grasp of brain function and child development, and simple techniques for creating a positive, management-friendly environment. Dr. Bone shows educators how the brains of children and their social situations affect behavior and how teachers can intervene successfully to shape desired outcomes. Video, power point, and small group instruction.
Parent Engagement evening, Monday evening
Did you know that the smartest any of ever will be is at age two, when we have the largest number of neural connections? The trick for parents, is to harness that brain energy. Dr Linda Karges-Bone’s Family Engagement session brings the current research on raising smarter, more creative children to life in practical, useful ways. Important topics include the family-literacy connection, Brain-friendly family meal recipes, threats of technology to early brain development, and strengthening family communication. Families will receive Dr Bone’s best-selling book “Brain Tips” to sustain and reinforce the strategies. For more information visit www.educationinsite.com
Trauma Informed Care
Trauma and stress affect a child’s brain in unique ways. The amygdala, located on each side of the cortex turn on and effectively shut down critical and creative thinking, making teaching and learning difficult if not impossible. In the session, Dr Bone will explain the trajectory of trauma and residual stress and help teachers understand students ‘ behavior, anxiety, and decisions in the light of childhood trauma. More importantly, participants will identify a menu of instructional and behavior management strategies that more effectively address the impacts of trauma and help students regain a healthy perspective.
June 12 Effective Classroom Practices
Effective Classroom Practices provide crucial support for the universal Tier 1 system. It creates a foundation of primary interventions to integrate with classroom management and instructional practices. These evidence-based “Great 8” essential components of an effective classroom focus on preventing rather than responding. The effective practices promote academic and behavioral competence. Participants will build on their strengths to further develop an effective and efficient classroom.

August 5--General Education Teachers…What you need to know about Special Education
This workshop is designed for general education teachers and focuses upon the core components of special education and the teacher’s role in all parts of the special education process. We will be discussing the history and laws behind special education, requirements in the pre-referral, referral, evaluation, and IEP processes. The purpose of this workshop is to empower general education teachers when it comes to working with students eligible for special education in their classrooms as well as be an active participant in the evaluation process. Discussion will also address accommodations, modifications, and interventions; the general education teacher as the curriculum expert; and how the general education teacher and the student are at the core of every special education program. The more a general education teachers knows for both general and special education—the better the overall services will be for ALL students.
