Lynette Bachman became interested in teaching when she volunteered in her children’s school.  She raised a child with ADD, a child with learning disabilities and a child that made everything look easy.  She has worked as a technology teacher and a reading specialist.  Now, a full-time reading specialist and RtI coordinator for two schools!  Lynette is best described as a champion for the underdog!  She brings humor, laughter, music and innovative ideas to reach the most reluctant of students.

This course is designed to provide teachers with research-based, proactive practices, and habits of mind for transformative classroom leadership. Strategies for creating a high-functioning learning community can promote skills that are critical for success both in and outside the classroom. The following attributes of a transformative classroom will be explored: clarity of purpose, self-responsibility, relationships among students, and an increasing level of function over time (based on Schindler’s model of Transformative Classroom Management). Grounded with an inner purpose, key attitudes, and strategies, teachers will learn how to discern the underlying effective teacher-student interactions, so they can recognize how to proactively prevent misbehaviors and intervene effectively when misbehaviors occur. Self-assessment and reflection are built into the activities, projects, and discussions so that teachers can examine their dispositions and efficacy as educators.
