Ok. not entirely sure how this all goes...but here's to my first "link up". Sounds fun!
1. The MUSIC I listen to is pretty much everything! I love 80's, pop, dance music, almost anything. I like country but I really never listen to it. I also love reggae (how can you be from San Diego and not?)
3. My must have MANAGEMENT practice is planning and preparation! It has to be planned and well organized. If not, all instruction goes out the window. Of course we all know things don't always go as planned in our minds (ahhhh) and I learn from that too! I can't tell you how many times I said to myself....."That soooo did not go as I planned!" As far as behavior management I am a huge believer in positive reinforcement and the CHAMPS method. I have been using CHAMPS for three years and I have seen excellent results. I have used it in general education as well as special education. Kids respond to praise so much more than "consequences".
