Hello, my name is Joe and I am the founder of PROUD Publications, a brand of P.R.O.U.D. Practical Solutions, LLC. (www.PROUDLLC.com) P.R.O.U.D. = Positive Resources Open Unlimited Doors. Having worked for more than 26 years with youth and families, I am uniquely familiar with social interactions, relationships & particularly motivations for human behavior. As a former School Counselor and current College Professor I am passionate about helping teachers help students increase their emotional intelligence and self-awareness and reach their highest potential.
I like to get to know my students by learning what things they like and what their goals are. After learning what motivates my students I try to design my teaching style such that the student can see how they benefit from learning what is being taught. With younger students I use the reward system where they are able to "earn" or "not earn" privileges and rewards. These approaches help youth become active-participants in their education and develop character along the way! By the way, this works for adolescents and adults as well!!!
PROUD Publications is currently pursuing several awards for our creative and helpful products.
I hold a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology, a Masters Degree in Counseling/Marriage Family and Child Therapy and a Master of Business Administration Degree. I am also a License Associate Professional Counselor specializing in youth and family therapy.
