About the Session

Intentional and Purposeful Breaks: Breaks are often not understood or used as effectively as possible. Together, we will discover practical ways to implement breaks, the purpose of the break, choosing between strategies and of course what kinds of breaks you can offer! Using breaks purposefully will provide students with intentional tools and activities that have them connect to regulating themselves for optimal learning behaviors in the classroom. This will be an active presentation, with lots of opportunities to learn and practice different kinds of breaks you can use with students of all kinds. Strategies for Managing Classroom Behavior: In this hands on session, we will examine and further develop triple p strategies for fostering relationships, developing skills and managing misbehavior in the classroom. Behaviors have become a major concern, learn how we can tame the "behavior beast"? We also look at positive behavior supports and their role in your toolbox.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.

Sheila’s interest in special needs started in elementary where she supported a segregated learning classroom during lunch hour. Sheila soon developed a passion and desire to change the way society interacts with those in the disabled community. While attending the U of S she worked with families with children with special needs and began to work towards behavior consulting and interventions. Sheila worked for Transitions where she discovered a connection with autistic children and a deep desire to learn more.

Sheila had the privilege of working on the PUF Team as well as the ELT Team in the St. Albert Public School Division for 12 years.
