Finally become the teacher you always dreamed of—
and the teacher your students always needed
The Firm, Fair, Fascinating Facilitator: Inspire Your Students, Engage Your Class, Transform Your Teaching is the book every educator has waited for! A current classroom teacher honestly and empathetically addresses the struggles and frustrations teachers face today, while also offering straightforward, realistic solutions and sound strategies to meet those challenges head on with renewed confidence, enthusiasm, and efficacy.
This book illustrates a commonsense, multi-dimensional teaching approach that consistently attends to the essential needs of all students by motivating them on four fundamental fronts:
Firmness provides the security, structure, and stability that engender courteous student cooperation and orderly classroom management.
Fairness fosters caring, community, and recognition that support a strong teacher-student rapport and personalized attention.
Fascination delivers passion, pertinence, and peer interaction that evoke sustained student engagement and investment.
Facilitation furnishes differentiated lessons and formative feedback that ensure increased student achievement and independence.
A Firm, Fair, Fascinating Facilitator simultaneously supplies all four of these indispensable student necessities because every child requires leadership and limits, understanding and encouragement, meaning and inspiration, as well as excellent instruction in order to reach their full potential. This book has it all because our students need it all! With its comprehensive four-books-in-one approach, this is the book every educator needs.
In addition to teaching, I am also a published author of three books for teachers and parents.
I walk my talk, tell it like it is (as well as how it should be), and offer practical strategies and solutions that empower teachers and parents so they can work together
to inspire the children they both care about.
I appreciate your support, welcome your comments, and look forward to interacting with you!
