    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

    The behavior guidelines utilized by our school can be found in the Elementary Code of Student Contractfound in the Alachua County Public School website.
