Several years ago I went to a week long Love and Logic seminar in Colorado and walked away so motivated to be positive in my classroom. I have used Love and Logic in my classroom for 8 years and every year the weekend before school starts I re-read my book. It's dogeared pages and highlighted sections are a comfort to me and remind me of the kind of environment I want my students to be in.
If you ever have the chance to hear Jim Fay speak it's so worth it! He is absolutely hilarious and he is a former teacher. He talks about how he really wasn't a very effective teacher for years and how he turned things around! If you can find the time check out Teaching with Love and Logic or head to the Love and Logic website for free resources and great articles.
