I have been a classroom teacher for twelve years and my primary responsibility for the past seven has been teaching social studies to students in fifth through eighth grade. I love teaching and working with children, however classroom management was a weakness for me. I had read books, discussed the problem with my peers and attended professional development classes. Nothing seemed to work for me.
Two years ago I was introduced to Whole Brain Teaching by a fellow staff member who shared with me the very tip of the iceberg of what WBT is. I began to use "Class-Yes" immediately and was amazed at the response from my students. My interest was piqued and I began to research more fully WBT.
During the past two years I have utilized the strategies of WBT in my classroom and have found my students to be more cooperative, eager to learn in a fun and interactive atmosphere and actually more encouraging to each other. I now go home each day more relaxed, energized and confident!
