When educators seek out opportunities to interact with students in order to convey supportive messages regarding their value within the school community — Keynoter Brian Mendler says problem behaviors can often diminish.
Brian is a certified elementary and special education teacher with extensive experience working with challenging students in a variety of settings. In his training sessions and books, he draws on his own experience as a very disruptive student with severe undiagnosed ADHD and reading difficulties. Brian will present a keynote session entitled That One Kid at the School Discipline Conference in Vegas in July. He will also present a 3-hour pre-conference session entitled Engaging, Motivating and Managing Hard to Reach and Disruptive Students.
