“‘Discipline Without Anger’ shows teachers how to successfully manage their classes so that they can be free to teach without having to become bullies to keep order,” Campbell said.
According to Campbell, many potentially great teachers today are teaching poorly (or not teaching at all) because of weaknesses or fears in the area of classroom management, and schools and students are paying a price.
“It is time that teachers learn how to successfully handle student misbehavior and finally reach their full potential,” Campbell said.
Tanya Ledford, another PCHS teacher, said, “‘Discipline Without Anger’ is an excellent resource for every teacher, whether you are just starting out or have been teaching for 20 years. Every school system should buy this book for all of their new teachers!”
