Using a no-nonsense yet nurturing approach with students helps them build confidence and embrace mistakes as opportunities which is essential for student engagement. It sends consistent messages to students throughout the day that they are both valued and held to high expectations. This allows them to truly engage in classroom learning without worrying about unsafe or distracting classroom behavior.
No-Nonsense Nurturer helps teachers overcome what gets in the way of their ability to connect with every student.
We give teachers the tools they need to change the “can’t” mindset, into a mindset that says, “They can learn this,” and a teaching practice that is driven by the mantra, “They will succeed.”
As students need a safe environment to learn, teachers need a safe environment to challenge the assumptions that are holding them back from holding high expectations for every student, even the ones they currently find “disruptive“ or “difficult.”
The goal of No-Nonsense Nurturer is never to punish teachers or make them feel badly; it’s to help them craft the puzzle piece that makes their teaching practice whole.
The No-Nonsense Nurturer model provides teachers with a consistent and positive classroom environment where every minute of class time is used for learning.
Language is critical: from precise directions to positive narration, students never have to guess what their teacher is thinking or whether their behavior is considered on-task.
No-Nonsense Nurturers use accountability and class-wide incentive systems so students can understand the drawbacks of not following directions and be celebrated for classroom community efforts to meet high expectations.
