If you are like most teachers you will have “that student” who pushes your buttons. It may be the student who constantly interrupts and calls out it may be the student who refuses to follow instructions or gives up when the learning task is hard.

These students challenge our ability as educators to stay calm and work with them. In these moments it’s quite possible we find ourselves actually feeling frustrated or helpless over just what to do. This workshop will help educators recognise the behaviours that students do that push our buttons. It will focus on being mindful of how we act, speak and think in these moments and whether these responses are achieving positive outcomes. Building this awareness and understanding will allow educators to alternatively choose responses that maintain positive relationships and assist students in being more responsible for their actions.
