Brian Mendler

Today was our second superintendent's conference day, and we had a guest speaker, Brian Mendler, who will be working in our district throughout the year helping us learn to motivate and manage hard to read, uninterested, and disruptive students. His presentation was AWESOME! I could listen to him for hours (and did). He definitely left us with a lot to think about. I seriously need to check out his books.
