### PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies)

If you are tired of repeating yourself or trying to motivate your students then PBIS would be something great for you to try.  I started using this 3 years ago in my Math classroom and it has made a difference.  The video shows how I use it in my classroom, I also have a video if your school is looking to implement it.

Presentation is key when sharing with your teachers.  As a teacher if it feels like one more thing on my plate, its going to be hard to be energetic about it as our plates are already overflowing.  It's important to have a plan for not just how you are going to start but how you are going to continue to grow in the process.  When creating this plan, please include the teachers since they are the main ones that will be implementing the process.  When the plan wasn't thought out or the majority of the work feel to the teachers, I noticed it failed at those sc
