Featured Speaker 
Laura Couret,  EDS Specialist
Laura Couret, originally from San Luis in the Gadsden School district, has been a Turn-Around Principal at Quentin Elementary in Littleton District. Seven years experience in 3 schools: moving from Underperforming to Performing Plus, making AYP and earning an "A" in AZ LEARNS. Laura's school met AYP in 2012 after not reaching this goal for the prior four consecutive years. They had 74 growth points because of their strategic practices of improving instruction and the exponential growth in their lowest performing students.

Classroom Management
Setting up a classroom management system that works for all students is not easy. Just as students learn in different manners, they respond in a variety of ways to the classroom management that exists. Participants will discuss the importance of setting up a schedule, routines and jobs/roles for students. In addition, different behavioral plans will be introduced so that students who struggle with classroom structure will have modifications and support so that they experience behavioral success. Finally, parent communication will be discussed. One of the most difficult portions of classroom management is communicating with parents if there is an issue. Parent communication and partnerships will be an integral part of classroom management, so opening the lines of communication prior to any negative "press" will be very important.
