E-Mail from a School Principal:
"I recently ordered books and poster from you to compliment what I learned from your website. I have implemented it in a couple behavior intervention plans and have seen success already. My elementary school has been shifting from a reward/punishment system to a teaching system in regards to behavior. We have more students than average with impulse control issues and the education approach is more effective."

"Three teachers in my school are using red and green choices to a degree in my school. Trust is a major issue. Red and green choices from a trusted adult are less threatening than rewards and punishment. Parents here trust the school most when their children are successful with behavior and academics. We use the Response to Intervention model to meet the needs of all students and meet the mandates of NCLB and IDEA. Im considering red and green choices as a portion, if not the core, of our Schoolwide plan...

...If Red and Green Choices are being used for a few students or many students, I think it is important that all staff know the fundamentals of it (your 13 points). All staff end up coming in contact with the few or many students and consistency is necessary for their progress. The Response to Intervention model is so geared to the needs of students, as I think Red and Green Choices are. We do quite a bit of self-training here through study and powerpoint, which is why I ask about your presentations...."

"A third grade teacher in my school walks around with a digital camera, taking pictures of her class or individuals choosing green behaviors. She prints them out and labels them with red or green marker and posts them in the room. The entire class responds positively to this intervention."...
