speakerWhat People Are Saying

I have incorporated the use of technology such as educational iPad applications to extend learning objectives and increase student engagement. I also use token rewards board with the student along with lots of positive specific praise to reinforce their behavior and to motivate them to continue working. Positive, specific praise is key in developing relationships with students that are the foundation of a positive learning environment. -- Danielle Diaz
