How do you reduce problem behaviors? Could it be as simple as acting out negative behaviors? At first glance, the School Perfect project — where students act out inappropriate stereotypes — may be counterintuitive, however, sometimes kids need to know what NOT to do. Today, we’re focusing on two things: a project that is reducing negative behaviors and a story of how one teacher started on his journey of innovation.

Listen to the show

The teacher who has started School Perfect, Todd Clinton @motivatedthe, is a special education teacher in a middle school. He works with students with behavioral disabilities, typically autism, ADHD, and EMD. He was previously a banker, before deciding to pursue his passion of working with kids. He is a proud dad to one and loves teachers so much he married one.

Topics include:

  • Todd Clinton’s “School Perfect” YouTube project
  • How this project is reducing negative behaviors in his school
  • How we can use negative and positive modeling to improve classroom behavior
  • His story of innovation and how he’s grown through the fear and push to innovate

I hope you enjoy this episode with Todd!
