  • Shout out to everyone who took on the serious work of planning to improve our program during our Thursday strategic planning meeting. It was necessary and productive. I think we have a clearer perspective on what needs to be addressed.

-Director Kamau

Each week, we want to recognize and shout out our school staff for the small things that make our days and weeks a little easier. Whenever you see something good happening or just want to encourage a colleague, send an email to lmeyers@sabis.net with the subject line as "shoutout" then explain why in the email. We will do our best to post them as we receive them or at least on a weekly basis through the IAT Tiger Times!


When a teacher is confronted with a misbehaving or non-compliant student, the challenging behavior presents a puzzle to be solved. Instructors skilled in resolving behavior problems know that effective behavior management is built upon 3 assumptions (Packenham, Shute, & Reid, 2004).
