“As a school superintendent, my mission for the staff is for them to make positive connections with all students.

“An excellent resource for educators who want to truly make a difference in the lives of their students. The Coaching Classroom walks educators through so many options and techniques to create meaningful discussion, trust, and help them to meet their students where they’re at.  As a school administrator, I plan to share this book with my educators to increase student performance and to help my staff be more mindful of their own personal health and well-being.”

— Gretchen Caruso | President | DuBois Central Catholic School | DuBois, Pennsylvania

“Education is a very fluid profession with changes occurring yearly, monthly, and sometimes daily. These changes often come associated with anxiety and frustration that can spill into the classroom.

— Manny Barbazzeni | Punxsutawney Area High School Assistant Principal
