Local area teachers from throughout the East Texas area filled LeTourneau University’s S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center Thursday to hear nationally renowned classroom management expert Harry Wong speak about educating today’s youth.
The theme of the morning session was about becoming a master teacher who motivates students and improves class achievement. Wong shared his commonsense, research-based approach to classroom management in a morning session, followed by an afternoon session featuring Guy Doud speaking about building relationships to motivate and engage students in learning.
The event was sponsored by the Region 7 Educational Service Center in Kilgore, Texas, and provided continuing education units for area teachers.
