The Behavior Resource Teacher's primary responsibility is to provide support to students and teachers. Our ultimate goal at Irby is to create a positive and safe learning environment so that each student can reach his/her maximum potential.
What does a Behavior Resource Teacher do?
- Works to improve school-wide behavior to maximize instructional time
- Provides tools for students to learn pro-social behaviors such as empathy, impulse control, and feelings management
- Teaches students to be responsible for their own behavior
- Supports teachers and families through behavior intervention and positive discipline strategies
How can you help your child?
- Practice consistent routines and establish clear rules at home which will carry over to school (i.e. waiting your turn, listening while others speak, etc.)
- Teach age-appropriate independence and responsibility
- Encourage the use of "I Care" language when interacting with others
- Sit face-to-face with your child and ask questions about their day.
- Read together daily.
