Your Instructor

Hello- I’m Teresa.  I’ve been working with adolescents, many at-risk- for over 20 years.  I know the struggle in getting students motivated, and how to connect the importance of setting and achieving goals to academic success.  I’ve spent hours and hours trying to find strategies and structures to help my students see how great it feels to accomplish their goals and increase their confidence and skills.


I spent six years creating a T2//T3 Middle School Math intervention class.  Many of my students hated math, and had given up on ever feeling successful in school!  I had to find a way, a consistent and structured system. Any system I used had to focus on academic growth, celebrate work ethic and provide personalized options to get my students motivated to set goals and grow their skills. I wanted a way to provide students with easy strategies and activities for setting goals and receiving timely positive feedback.

The strategies and tools I’m sharing with you in this course are straight from my classroom.  I used these exact structures and tools with my students. They work!  One of the most powerful tools and systems I used was having my students set consistent, personalized goals focused on academic work ethic and growth.  Connect that with desirable incentives, and students will work and grow their skills.
