Second Workshop in the Series
Why Are So Many Teens So Angry?
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
1pm to 4pm
Dealing with Teens Today can be a challenge to parents, educators, counselors, and anyone who chooses to work with them. You may know what it's like to be in a classroom with students who are angry and disrespectful as well as try to balance your other daily duties. Dealing with angry and disrespectful teenagers in the classroom can make it very difficult for you to teach and for their peers to actually concentrate and learn. An educator today could very well find themselves doing more disciplinary work than actually educating. There are many struggling teachers and counselors who feel that there efforts to teach, empower, and change our teens today are done in vain. Ms. Dacia Moore wants you to hang on to the hope of seeing your hard work pay off as you watch your students excel in the classroom and beyond. Attending this workshop will provide you with practical, easy to use strategies to help you better understand and work with Teens Today.
