RCD Trainers

RCD Schools typically see a significant improvement not only in behavior management, but also in school climate, student and teacher satisfaction and ultimately academic success.

"The presenter did an excellent job of modeling how to handle difficult situations with students. This is the best Professional Development training I've been to in years."
High School Teacher
New Orleans, LA
"This is a common sense approach with concrete reminders for the teacher. Responsibility-Centered Discipline is do-able and it is real! The training was very informational and enjoyable."
Reading Specialist
Painted Post, NY
"RCD gives specific ways to deal with disruptive behavior. The "Give 'em Five" support is especially helpful. I can use the strategies right away!"
Classroom Teacher
Cleveland, OH
"The best way to summarize our training is amazing. I apologize for the vagueness, but there's try no other way to describe it. Our teachers are still talking about the impact the RCD process will have. We are in our first full week of school and are already benefiting from all that we learned."
