After attending Positive Discipline in the Classroom certification facilitated by SEL Chicago's Kristin Hovious, I have never been more excited for the weekend to end and get back into my classroom on Monday morning.  As an 8 year veteran, my friends and I joke that it's a good Professional Development if you come back with one great idea.  This workshop provided hundreds immediately useful tools.  I hope that as I begin using this tools in my classroom, my students feel as empowered as I do right now.      Mollie M, Chicago 

I'm a veteran teacher with 13 years of experience.  I've been to innumerable workshops.  Typically I'm left either uninspired and irritated by time wasted, or inspired but left without tools to move forward.  Today's training left me both incredibly inspired to focus on building social skills in my classroom, and empowered with tools to be immediately effective.  I can't wait for our next  session. -Tracy R.
