When students have a choice, they feel empowered to make the right decisions. When students are allowed a voice, they feel validated to take ownership in their learning. When students feel safe, they feel brave enough to tackle academic and personal challenges. When teachers are compassionate and willing to provide these things for their students, classroom management becomes less about discipline and more about learning and teaching.

Join us for an interactive, yet deeply reflective, one-day training on the Woope Sakowin (Seven Laws). This workshop will provide teachers with the tools to transform their classrooms into positive, safe and brave environments, foster trusting relationships and teach valuable life skills.
