Great for Novice and Veteran Teachers Alike

Formally creating a behavior plan is well worth the time even if you think you know what yours is. This was a great refresher for a veteran teacher. I really needed the what-ifs especially.

Written Format is So Valuable!

Writing everything out is incredibly helpful and clarifying, especially the final section where we anticipate, think through and write out exactly how we will respond to each of a dozen scenarios. I'm a veteran K teacher, yet these specific situations have gotten my goat in the past.

Not Having a Plan Was Causing Me Stress

This class forced me to make decisions about every part of my classroom management system. As I did so, I realized that I had been stressed because I did not have a complete plan before. I feel so much better going into the new school year!

The classroom management workbook to help you foster respect & helps students focus


Hi! I’m Linda Kardamis, former teacher and founder of Teach 4 the Heart. I know what it's like to feel like a failure in your own classroom - to be lost and confused and have no idea what to do to turn things around. My first year teaching was a mess. Giving "the look" was about as far as I thought through having a plan but I didn't have anything for what would happen after that. Needless to say, it didn't take long for the effectiveness of that to run out.  

Praise God, He didn't leave me there. He led me to the solutions and strategies I needed to create a smooth-running classroom, and I'm so thankful He's allowed me to share those strategies with over 28,000 teaches - helping them improve their classroom management and regain their students' respect. I can't wait to hear how this workbook helps you create a respectful classroom, too!
