Classroom Management 101

As a teacher, I know you want to be able to walk into your classroom feeling confident in your ability to keep your students’ attention. You want to be able to handle that one disruptive kid who’s causing the majority of the chaos. And you want to know how to motivate those students who just aren’t interested.

But unfortunately, that just may not be the case for you. It sure wasn’t for me my first year of teaching. I thought I knew what to do, but I made some big mistakes, and a few months into the year I had a bit of a mess on my hands. I was frustrated and stressed – this was just not how I envisioned that teaching would be.

I know I’m not the only one who’s stood in front of their class and wondered how on earth I was supposed to get them to listen to me. That’s why I created this course – to share the knowledge and skills I’ve learned so that you can quickly conquer your classroom management challenges and become the successful, effective, and happy teacher that you’ve always wanted to be.Classroom Management 101 online course

Who Is This Course For?

This course is for any teacher who wants to improve their classroom management. A new teacher or a teacher who’s struggling to control their classroom will gain the knowledge they need to succeed, and a veteran teacher who has the basics down will pick up additional skills and ideas to take their classroom to the next level. This course is great for any K – 12 teacher. I mostly taught middle school, so many of my examples relate best to those grades, but I also relate the principles to all grades, from kindergarten up to high school.

Will It Really Help Me Manage My Classroom?

I can’t promise you that all your problems will go away after you take this course. But I can tell you that the course will teach you everything I know about classroom management. It will help you learn how to cut out the chatter and the disruptions, how to prevent problems from happening in the first place, what to do when a student misbehaves, how to motivate the students who just aren’t interested, and how to eliminate the chaos and get your students to listen to you.

How Long is the Course and How Does it Work?

The course contains over 6 hours of video. Each module contains about 10 lessons, and each video lesson is typically 5-10 minutes long. You can watch these videos online anywhere that you have an internet connection. Also included are downloads and links to additional resources. When you purchase the course, you will have as long as you’d like to complete the course.

So How Much Does it Cost?

I wrestled with how to price out this course because I know that teachers don’t normally have a lot of money to spare. Yet I know that the information I have to offer is extremely valuable and is well worth the money invested. I also know that if I offer it for free, I won’t have proper funding to continue to grow Teach 4 the Heart and create additional courses.

Right now, the price for an individual enrollment is $147. However, for a limited time, I’m offering a “Pay what you can afford” promotion – where you simply pay what you can afford (minimum $35). Check it out here:

Will the Course Be Worth the Money?

If you have been struggling with controlling your classroom then, yes, absolutely. I know that when I first started teaching the stress and frustration of having an out-of-control classroom was just overwhelming. By taking this course, you’ll learn how to cut out the disruptions, control your class, and motivate and inspire your students. As a result, you’ll feel better and actually start to enjoy teaching. And that is well worth the price of enrollment!

Can I Count This Towards Continuing Education?

When you finish the course you’ll be able to download a certificate of completion stating that you completed the 6+ hour course. You can then submit this certificate to your administrator for approval for continuing education credits. (We also hope to pursue official accreditation in the future but haven’t had the chance yet since we just launched the course.)

What If I Don’t Like It?

I don’t want you to have to worry about whether or not this is worth the money, so let me give you a guarantee. I’m confident you’ll love the course, but if for any reason you’re not completely satisfied with the content provided, just let me know and I’ll refund the entire purchase price. No questions asked. No expiration dates.
