Salinas, Calif. – Retiring educator, author, and inventor Rick Morris, a recognized specialist in the field of student management, motivation, and engagement, will be leading the last training of his career for over one hundred Monterey County educators. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Bardin School Professional Development Center, 425 Bardin Road, Salinas.
Mr. Morris’ highly successful New Management program, which has revolutionized the art of teaching, is based on his thirty-one years of classroom experience. A gifted speaker with a proven talent for motivating educators of all ages, Rick’s up-beat, on-target workshops inspire teachers to incorporate his exciting, innovative management tools into their classrooms on a daily basis.
Valuable to teachers in all stages of their careers, this training is especially significant for the hundreds of new teachers joining the professional throughout Monterey County during the severe teacher shortage. Classroom management is important to the whole education process, offering students an ideal learning environment, helping retain teachers, and making students and teachers feel safer and happier.
To promote student achievement and success, Rick will share a variety of innovating and practical ideas centered on creating a new classroom culture. As opposed to the traditional obedience-based classroom in which students always have to be told what to do—or what not to do—the new culture inspires students to become both independent and self-directed lifelong learners.
