Stacy Morgan is presenting at Texas Rural School conference in Georgetown, Texas
February 9, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
|Stacy Morgan has been in education for 14 years, including working as a teacher, behavior specialist and and district administrator. After completing a Master’s Educational Psychology at Texas A&M, Stacy co-founded Emergent Tree Education, serving districts across the state in setting up effective social, emotional and behavioral systems of support. She is also Past-President of the Texas Association of Behavior Specialists (TxABS), a non-profit organization serving behavior-focus educators and administrators. Stacy now frequently speaks at state and national conferences on how to use systemic design to create preventative and sustainable approaches to behavior supports.
Stacy will be presenting Addressing Root Causes of Campus Behavioral Challenges: Behavior in the classroom environment can quickly get learning off track. As a teacher, the constant interruption can be frustrating as instructional time diminishes. As an administrator, it can be exhausting chasing behavior from crisis to crisis. But when challenging behavior becomes an ongoing pattern and the tools in your chest have not worked, it is often unseen, underlying issues that are the cause. This presentation will outline three hidden barriers that impact the effectiveness of behavior supports, how to identify what underlying barrier are impacting outcomes, and solutions to boost intervention effectiveness, teacher confidence and restore administrator time and energy back to leading a campus focused on instruction. Participants will be given tools to identify barriers and see demonstrations of solutions for each barrier.
