PBIS in Reverse

Our school has began implementing the PBIS (positive behavior intervention support) system to begin a proactive approach to shaping behaviors.  We pass out beaver tails that can be converted to beaver bucks, and once a month we will have a store that they can purchase items with their beaver bucks.    It is a researched based incentive program.


However, I am taking PBIS in reverse.  Our teachers are the models and the core of this program, so why not recognize them for their efforts?  Everytime I catch a teacher using technology or an innovative teaching strategy, I put them up on my PRAISE PAGE.  I then shoot them out an email to let them know BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING (so to speak.)


I also opened it up to the kids... make sure to check the page and congratulate the teachers.  In addition, they can nominate their teacher for a job well done.


PBIS in reverse - recognizing the recognizers!

You understand the secret, grasshopper...

PBIS is primarily about changing educator's behavior. The outcome is an improvement in student behavior.
