I’m encouraged by the useful and concrete classroom management ideas. I now have a plan that will provide structure. I can show my students how much I care and how much I expect. Kewanta gave me some great ideas on how to help the students track their own data which will empower them.Katlyn Barton, Educator
We love having Kewanta in our school district because she empowers the teachers. She teaches them procedures, classroom management, differentiated instructions and we keep getting her to come back because the teachers enjoy her so much. Thank you KewantaLinda Downing, Director of Secondary Education
Thanks to Kewanta, I no longer assume kids know how to behave. We have to spend time on routines and procedures. We are fussing about things throughout the year because we are not teaching our expectations. If you take the time to teach it in the beginning and model what that looks like, then you’ll have the rest of the year to actually teach instead of spending time correcting. My eyes are open.Jennifer Garza, Educator
I learned how to defuse situations when students give you sass. I learned how to keep calm and move forward to maintain class control. A huge thank you to Kewanta.Lincoln Boyd, Educator
I have learned a lot of new strategies from Kewanta. I implemented them in my classroom and they are working. I am teaching the routines to the students and they are learning those routines. I feel so stress free.Mrs. Mayo, Math Coordinator

Kewanta’s new book, “What Willy Wonka Taught Me About Parental Involvement: Tips to Become a Highly Effective and Engaging K-12 Educator” is written for educators who feel lost, and are looking for application based strategies they can implement right away; and for experienced educators who are looking to receive a refresher course on how to engage this new generation of students.
Kewanta works with educators across the country. She began her K-12 career as a self-contained classroom teacher in Houston, TX. After three short years in the classroom, Kewanta became the Teacher of the Year, a model classroom teacher, and a sought after instructional coach. Kewanta understands what it takes to work with a diverse group of students and help them grow.
“The best way for me to serve children is to be an educator. But, after my first two long months in the classroom, I wanted to give up and walk away forever. No amount of theory could prepare me for that shock. I discovered that theory alone could not make me a highly effective teacher. I needed to know what to say, what to do, and how to be.
Now, I can reach more students by training other educators to also be highly effective.”
Kewanta speaks at educational conferences all over the country. She conducts campus and district training in classroom management, differentiated instruction, new teacher training, and Elementary STEM.
