Teacher and Author
"Our mission is to make teachers more effective by giving them classroom management tools that will empower them to create a classroom environment that facilitates learning and student engagement."

Karen Aitken is passionate about changing behaviors in students to help them understand themselves better; empower them to make better decisions; and ultimately give them the social skills to be successful in school and in life. She has seen students who were apathetic about school, labeled a bully, or lacked self-confidence, transform once they had gained the skills that they needed to alter the patterns in their habits. Many teachers have realized that by using the training Karen offers, they have the ability to help their students become confident, self-managing, productive, and motivated students, who have the grit and ownership of learning required for success as a 21st century learner.
Another great outcome of this training program is that teachers are able to develop a classroom community where the instructional approach to discipline enables them to spend more time teaching and less on behavior problems. Parents are supportive of this approach and it helps build communication and better relationships.
