Testimonials

I have seen really big changes in my students and classroom when I use the Guiding Cooperation approach. I have enjoyed the content and the constant reminder of the basics of what our students and staff and teachers are dealing with. Having a safe forum to focus on the emotional struggles has been great. Helping the relationships and emotional well-being changes the energy and learning in the room.

 

-Margaret, Special Education Educator, AUHSD

 

Doing Guiding Cooperation as a team so we all learn together and focus on using these same principles is really helpful.  I really like the emphasis on the positivity and describing behaviors and efforts in a positive way and altering our language can really make a big difference with our students.
