Noting Success

* Although teachers are busy and have a lot of things try giving the parents phone calls for the good things there kids did threw out the day or how there grades are really good.

*Let the children know that they can do anything, it is not the teachers obligation to go farther than they should but it would be nice for Teachers to push them self a little harder to show the kids that they care.

*If the teachers are in grades 1-4 prizing them with a treat or a certificate every once in a while this  would help them try to be better.  

* It is easy for busy teachers to simply respond to behavior problems, in a sharper harsh way. Give positive feedback instead.
