This webinar is designed to give educators access to the tools with which to create strong classroom management, an imperative skill which, although not typically a part of teacher preparation programs, is the most powerful and direct route to high academic achievement. As an educator who has led her students to achieve record-breaking results, at times well above the achievement of their “advanced” peers, I can attest to the power of excellent classroom management. The Gottman Institute
Originally from Haiti, Medgine Eugene is a master educator who works with school administrators, teachers, parents, and students to create cooperative and inspiring educational environments. She believes that empowering each party of a school system to fully communicate their needs in healthy and constructive ways better enables those needs to be met and ultimately better ensures students will achieve measurable and sustainable success because, as she says, “if you want to really help a student, you must first help the people who are in direct contact with that student on a regular basis.”
Ms. Eugene received her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut and her Master’s degree at St. John’s University in New York. She has honed her teaching skills in both urban and suburban environments, such as Queens NY, Phoenix, AZ and Bridgeport, CT. Before leaving Connecticut, she created a program to improve her school’s math and reading scores and helped the teachers implement it.
While in Northwest Ohio, she first coached teachers of the Perrysburg school system in Applied Behavior Analysis to better work with students falling on the autism spectrum. Then, after researching areas such as bullying and foster care, she determined that children and others affected by these topics could be greatly assisted by emotional intelligence based programs and other programs increasing self-awareness and providing self-empowerment tools. She worked to obtain her certificate in Emotion Coaching from the Gottman Institute, and thereafter has successfully coached and advocated for students and their parents in the school districts of Toledo, Sylvania, Anthony Wayne and Ottawa Hills, as well as with other organizations. Currently, she is also piloting school wide programs for emotional intelligence and creating parent-school interface groups.
