Debbie Simoes- National Trainer & Speaker

Educators don’t need new add-ons or directives with catchy names. They need ways to minimize discipline issues and make content resonate with students more than the latest video game or the drama in students’ lives.

How can we reach today’s kids, inspire them and guide them on the path towards their highest potential? How can we be more effective, energized and at peace in our classrooms?

Moreover. . .

Is there a way for teachers to rise above the increasing demands and problems that detract from loving every minute of their calling?

Can school be a place teachers and students love to be?

Can school be a place where students and teachers truly feel like they belong?

The research is clear, when students know they’re valued as a human being, not just another student, when they feel connected and encouraged by their circumstances, they work harder and challenge teachers less.

Likewise, when teachers know they are valued, when they feel connected and encouraged by their circumstances, and equipped with tools that work, teachers are more effective and fulfilled.

The missing ingredient is the right kind of connection. With a focus on developing our greatest asset- our teachers- in ways that matter and deliver immediate results,

Debbie partners with schools and districts to transform the school experience. Her Classroom Leadership Approach multiplies teacher impact, student outcomes, and smiles.

Debbie believes teachers need research-based, practical strategies to transform the school experience…. things they can easily implement that make an immediate difference – without throwing anything out that is working in their classrooms.

Students bring a wide range of experiences, cultural assets social/emotional skills and cognitive abilities.  Sometimes the only thing they have in common is their age! The “one size fits all” approach does not work for today’s youth.

The biggest unchallenged assumption about education by many today (especially politicians)  is that kids are coming to school willing and ready to learn. As educators, we know this is not the case. We have a generation of kids coming to our schools basically disconnected and unsocialized. Many are learning behavior from TV shows, video games, social media and movies.

While we can’t do much from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., there is a lot we can do from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Debbie is dedicated to helping educators achieve greater success and, more importantly, significance by developing a mindset and a proven, practical skills set of a Classroom Leader.

Old ways don’t open new doors!

Classroom Leadership is upgrading the school experience  for thousands of educators and students just like you. Are you ready for an upgrade?
