January 27, 2011 (FPRC) -- Cyberbullying, iPhones, and texting didnít even exist when many teachers were training to become educators, yet these are some of the current, major problems that dominate many contemporary classrooms. Colleges prepare teachers to work with students from years past, and fail to provide practical, updated training to ready teachers for todayís new breed of student. That is part of why many teachers find it nearly impossible to establish successful classroom management. The Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Troubled Youth Workshop provides teachers, principals, teaching assistants, school counselors, special educators, and administrators with updated, new training to prevent and manage contemporary classroom management and school behavior problems. The seminar will be held in Seattle, WA on May 5-6, 2011, and Portland, Oregon on October 13-14, 2011.

The workshop instructor is Ruth Herman Wells, M.S. Earlier this month Ms. Wells was ranked by SpeakerWiki.org as the nationís #3 speaker in elementary education, and #9 for high school education speakers. The workshop is sponsored by Youth Change Professional Development Workshops. Financial aid is available by calling 1-800-545-5736.

In addition to learning state-of-the-art techniques to control studentsí cyberbullying, the workshop includes specific steps on how to manage students who refuse to complete their work. The course also shows how to motivate unmotivated and apathetic students, and how to improve attendance and punctuality.
