Praise for Elementary Teacher’s Discipline Problem Solver

Where was this book during my teacher training? Finally, a clear, step-by- step, practical guide for managing every behavior issue – large or small, A to Z. Dr. Shore will help you stop classroom problems before they start.” – Joan Warren Stahl, First-Grade Teacher, San Rafael, California School District

Every teacher, from novice to master, should have this book in their professional library. It offers clear, straightforward advice when your ‘gut’ response just might lead you astray. I intend to make it available to my entire staff.”_ – Dr. John Kazmark, Superintendent of Schools, Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

I own Dr. Shore’s other book, ‘Special Kids Problem Solver’, and found that really useful working with kids with academic, behavioral or medical problems so when I learned that Dr. Shore had a new book out about discipline I was eager to get it. I was not disappointed. It tackles about 70 different problems that every teacher will eventually have to deal with and gives very practical, very helpful strategies. For each problem there are maybe 8 to 10 suggestions and you can almost always find some strategy that applies to your situation. I’ve been teaching for 14 years and have found many strategies that are new to me. Whether you’re a new or veteran teacher, get a hold of this book. It will save you lots of frustration and help give you the time to do what you were trained to do – teach.” – review
