Welcome to the January 2012 Teacher Tips!

Happy New Year…2012!  I hope you are rested, rejuvenated and excited for the year ahead. New Year’s is a time to reflect on the past year and make resolutions for the new one. Please resolve to fully implement all of the CHILD/TEAMS components. They are research-based, proven best practices designed to help students reach their academic goals.

Review the CHILD® or TEAMSprocedures as students return to school. Discuss the things that went well the first semester, and practice procedures that need improvement. Set goals together and organize Passports or Work Logs for the start of the second semester.  Start 2012 with a renewed dedication to creating joyful classrooms.

Teacher Tips posts the first of each month with implementation ideas to help you create successful and joyful classrooms. Enjoy this month’s issue of Teacher Tips and check the website (www.ifsi.org) frequently for a wealth of other helpful information and resources!

Mark your calendars now and plan to join us at Clearwater Beach for Consultant Training February 4th and 5th.

Have a great 2012!
