Conducting a classroom management workshop for ‘new’ teachers in New Britain, CT, on 10/15. Teachers receive my Ecological Model booklets and view power point modules and videotapes illustrating a proactive system of strategies to empower their behavioral skills. Dozens of staff have attended this annual event during 2000s.
“I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Perras’ instruction in the Ecological Model during my first year of teaching (2006) in one of the largest urban high schools in CT. The elements of classroom design and positive rewards set high expectations for my students to achieve. I was able to keep my students engaged and excited about learning while managing even the most difficult learners with his strategies.”— Lea Catherman, Biology Teacher, Central High School, Bridgeport, CT
