A successful teaching career or an early exit is almost solely determined by classroom management skills. SDEA is excited to unveil an updated training that originated in California over 20 years ago, designed to provide teachers with the tools they need to set up and maintain a well-managed classroom. Highly engaging and interactive, effective veteran teachers find immediate value and relevance in the training as much as new teachers. The training uses SDEA’s First Years, Great Career booklet as a resource.

May 7–11 — National Teacher Appreciation Week

And though we know we can’t ever thank them enough, we can take a moment during National Teacher Appreciation Week to share our appreciation for the special educators in our lives.
