You Can be the Teacher AND the Class Clown!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There is such a thing as having a well-managed class, which can progress academically, AND be fun! Learn how to “juggle” these important aspects of a successful classroom with ideas, tips, and stories from former Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus clown turned educator, Valerie Hall (aka Daisy the Clown).
By incorporating several classroom management programs including CHAMPS, classroom cheers, raps, songs, unique motivators, and humor, Valerie Hall has made her classrooms blossom into a welcoming environment that students love to go to.
With Valerie’s techniques, she has been able to increase academic scores, while decreasing referrals at Title One schools, see a growth rate of 80% in parent participation at those same Title One schools, and decrease negative behaviors in her current ABS (Academic Behavior Support) Classroom by 60% since the beginning of the school year through January.
Be prepared to participate in this fun professional development opportunity, by learning and shouting cheers, dancing, singing, and maybe even by donning a clown nose.
