The Trail PRESENTS Connecting the Dots

Professional Learning Collaborative IARSS TRAIL Speaker Series: Managing the Classroom Effectively.  Creating Student Success by Combining Social Emotional Learning with Effective Classroom Management.  Featuring speaker, Author, founder of Connections Count and Freedom Writer Teacher:  Anne Schober.

The best learning occurs when supportive relationships are present.  Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is at the center of this success.  This highly interactive and engaging day will provide participants with many different techniques which they can use in their classrooms to formulate strong and productive relationships with their students with Social Emotional Learning as the central focus.

Anne Schober was in the trenches and has witnessed the massive transformation that has occurred in education.  When she entered her first classroom, she had dreams of perfect students, involved parents and lots of learning happening on a daily basis.  Her dreams were crushed and she had no idea how to reach her students.  In 2007, she was chosen by Erin Gruwell, the founder of the Freedom Writer Foundation and the teacher behind the movie, The Freedom Writers, to become one of 400 teachers worldwide to student under her tutelage.  Through this exposure, Anne learned how to engage, enlighten and empower her students and learned the importance of the student-teacher bond.
