“Seriously best class I ever had in high school  or college!!” Former student

The positive team-building environment this course creates allows teens to thrive as they learn and embrace the tools that empower and support them at this transitional time in their lives.
 

Created and originally taught by twenty-eight year education veteran and former Teacher of the Year Marianne Douglas after Columbine and the tragic suicide of one of her students, this program is the perfect accompaniment to help balance the stresses of testing, Common Core, bullying and  the other issues that teens in school face today.

Strategies for Success provides students with multi-intelligence, whole brain based, and team building sets of lessons that allow students to gain tools for coping with issues both in and out of school.  The energizing classroom environment created in this course allows students to actively participate in building strategies that will last a lifetime.
