Starting my three classroom management workshops for Alternative Route to Certification teacher candidates on March 3rd. One – hundred secondary educators will attend three workshops to receive an entire orientation to my Ecological Model system of instructional practices and proactive behavioral strategies. Since 1990, approximately 3, 600 prospective teachers have attended these sessions, while dozens have also been supervised during student teaching and coached after employment.
Dr. Perras was a great resource during my new position as an art teacher in a secondary program for ‘at – risk’ youth in New Haven. My classroom success is the result of implementing his Ecological Model practices. It has been invaluable to have Dr. Perras’s on – site advise as a mentor and colleague. Others should seek his personal and professional dialogue.— Michael Berg, ARC graduate, 2011
