"The seven simple secrets for teachers course was awesome. I think that as teachers who are experienced we often think we are "Know it alls". It was great to revisit topics we might not put much thought into like we did our first few years of teaching. This course was great and I look forward to taking another course through graduatecreditcourses.com!"

"Classroom management is something that I and almost every teacher has struggled with. When I first started teaching I thought it was important to have lots of rules - created by students under my guidance. I taught in a private school and there were few, if any, student discipline problems. After a few years I moved to our city school district and found out no matter how many rules I had, I had a lot of students who chose not to follow them - and I was getting very frustrated. I finally talked with teachers who had hardly any problems and I realized that they had great relationships with their students and had few rules. I didn't know then, but what I was looking for was the difference between rules and procedures. It seems so simple but it really works. I took several classes and attended workshops on positive discipline, love and logic in the classroom, and read lots of books. I wish I had taken this course!!! I realize how important relationships are, but this course really makes me rethink even some of the things I do today in my classroom. "
