"Stronger Teams Meeting Students' Needs"

Teaching Our Youth professional development focuses on meeting the social, emotional and academic needs of students through educational team-building, classroom behavior management facilitated with the Love and Logic ® skills, differentiated instruction, and parent enrichment. The combination of RtI (Response to Intervention) and PBS (Positive Behavior Support) provides effective strategies to improve both behavior and academic achievement.
