Transforming chaos into calm

Pieces of broken desks on the classroom floor. Students entering the class and walking on the desktops instead of on the floor. Others running around the classroom out of control, seemingly beyond the ability of adults to contain them.

These situations—and mild to severe variations of them—have been routine for me during the past several years while serving as a behavior management consultant in the public schools. My job is to resolve and neutralize these conditions on the spot while also presenting teachers with skills to enable them to "keep the lid on" their classrooms, thus helping ensure student learning.
