Personal Message

I am always looking for ideas on how to reach the underachieving student. Any proven classroom tips would be greatly appreciated. I would love to learn of positive ways to reinforce both behavior and skills for my junior high students. Anything that you have found particularly useful I would enjoy hearing about.
