TEACHERS EFFECTIVENESS TRAINING

Teacher Effectiveness Training (T.E.T.) offers teachers the essential communication and conflict resolution skills they need to have high quality relationships with their students so there will be less conflict and more teaching-learning time. This model has worked for hundreds of thousands of teachers around the world.

T.E.T. is a program designed to involve participants very actively in their own learning.

YOUTH EFFECTIVENESS TRAINING

The purpose of Y.E.T. is to help youth develop themselves socially and emotionally by offering them both basic personal development skills as well as relationship skills—skills they can use in all areas of their lives and for a lifetime.

Y.E.T. provides kids with healthy alternatives to self-defeating coping mechanisms such as rebellion, retaliation, lying, running away, using drugs and the like.

Unofficial information?
He loved to tell super bad puns, made it a point to relate to every person he came in contact with and wanted to know their stories. Any time there was a child nearby, he would get down on their level to talk with them. He was indeed a great man with a great legacy and we're doing more than carrying on his legacy - we made it ours and we are on a mission to help the world get along better - starting with YOU!
