This course has helped me out a lot as a new teacher. There were so many concrete strategies presented in dealing with problems, issues and daily routines. I found that everything was very digestible and quite easy to put to practice. Ideas were broken down simply and their application demonstrated. I have used many of these strategies in my classroom and have noticed that things run smoother. I am very grateful to have had this class.

Excellent workshop! Well worth the time, effort, and money OPS used! Tons of new information! I hope you realize what a phenomenal experience this was! I loved getting the practical information in a group setting with you modeling many different teaching strategies along the way! The book’s easy-to-use (and read) format was extremely beneficial because of its headings, bullets, and practical advice!

I am a teacher of children who are moderately cognitively impaired. My group of students has a range of disabilities and learning levels. It has been tough for me to administer lessons in a fun, innovative way that reaches all of my students. Throughout the course of the last two or three months, I have learned a wide variety of strategies that I am able to apply in my classroom that gets all of my students excited about learning. I feel much more confident in my classroom. I am able to challenge my students and motivate them to contribute steady effort to the lesson. I would not have made it through the year without these incredible tips and tools. This has made me a much more productive teacher and I am thankful for everything I have learned.
