Behavior Resources


    The Behavior Resource Teacher, Alex Martinez (BRT) is a member of the W.W. Irby Resource Team.

    His 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
        * supports teachers through behavior intervention and positive discipline strategies

        * provides tools for students to learn pro-social behaviors such as empathy, impulse control, and anger management
        * teaches students to be responsible for their own behavior
        * provides supervision for students before and after school, in the hallways, and in the lunchroom

    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
