What educators are saying

I have used this every year and it is the best management system I have found that also teaches respect. Everything is laid out so simply and it was a lifesaver my first year of teaching.
Love the collaboration that this requires of the students, immediately helping to build that sense of community. Since implementing it in my classroom my students have really improved.

Looking for a way to bring more respectful behavior to your classroom?

This classroom management approach is a highly-effective tool for teaching students to be consistently mindful, respectful, responsible, and independent. It is also a powerful, yet discreet way to hold students accountable for their behavior decisions. When students know they will be asked in a respectful way to reflect on and correct their behavior, respect is given in return. Digital and print versions now included.

Stigmas of poor behavior created and reinforced by more public behavior management systems like clip charts or red cards are completely eliminated with R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Overall, this approach to behavior management both promotes and demonstrates respectful behavior, and is all based on the guiding principle:

♥ "Laura continues to amaze me! This resource is great for my digital learning students while holding them accountable for following our class expectations! My students also enjoyed learning about our new classroom motto! This works beautifully in the digital classroom setting, and I know it will be even more effective for in-person learning! I'm looking forward to using this resource for many, many years!" - P.B.

♥ "PERFECT!!! This was the first resource that I purchased as a first-year teacher one year ago, and it is still my favorite today. R.E.S.P.E.C.T. is a great way to build a positive classroom community. The fix it tickets encourage students to be accountable for their own actions and to learn from their mistakes. I was so happy to see that this resource was updated for distance learning this year and will definitely continue to use this resource for years to come." - Leola P.

♥ "This is an incredible program! My students understand RESPECT and we are growing in our understanding each day. I love how if puts the focus on them controlling their own decisions and behaviors!" - Ashley R.

♥ "This resource and the way the lessons are structured were perfect for my students. So often we talk to students about the need to be respectful, without taking the time to discuss exactly what that means. This ensured that we were all on the same page in our expectations, and gave the students ownership of the process. I plan to use this system for distance learning this fall as well." - Jesse L.G.
