As the 2010 school year begins, teachers and parents may find themselves with difficult children and are unsure of the best way to discipline them. To help, Andrea Billingsley Whitfield provides energetic, educational, and inspiring workshops. She discusses how to deal with issues ranging from disrespect for authority to aggressive behavior.
Andrea has a deep concern for developing a positive image in students. Her "Behavior Chart" utilizes behavior modification techniques which are designed to help teachers and parents gain and keep control.
An innovative way to measure and control behavior is by implementing a chart with pockets. Symbols or names will be placed on each pocket. If a child is disobedient, a strip is placed in the pocket.
To help students develop into productive citizens of society by learning good virtues, she implements and introduces Character Education traits. These traits include trustworthiness and responsibility.These help teachers and parents create positive influences that will instill a sense of belonging in youth and a belief that they are loved. In her workshop, she demonstrates how to integrate Character Education with the Curriculum.
Helpful Strategies for Parents Raising Kids is an example of one of Andrea's workshops. It includes valuable tips and strategies on topics such as, love and connect. Barbara McCoy, principal of Hard Elementary School said, "Andrea was the Professional Development Presenter at our school. Her presentation kept the audience involved, informed, and entertained. She has been invited to come back in October."
Recently, Andrea was the guest speaker sharing Everyday Parenting Tips on a global talk radio show, http://www.radioeearnetwork.com/ and WAGG, Heaven 610.
Andrea has been consulting teachers and parents for 32 years. Presently, she is a third grade teacher. She is certified in elementary education, special education, and principalship k-12.
