Kim Bearden's Creating a Climate and Culture for Success: The Keys to Effective Communication is a series of modules that teach how to motivate, engage, empower, and inspire students, staff, and families. Kim's methods will help educators ignite a passion for learning, provide support, hold high expectations for student behavior, promote parental involvement, and ensure a safe, secure environment. During the course, participants will learn the six principles of effective communication as well as strategies that build rapport, strengthen relationships, promote academic excellence, and even increase productivity.
After completing the series, educators will be given the opportunity to attend a live, virtual session with Kim to ask questions and engage in discussion.
