Smith MS Teacher Named Teacher of the Month By Rethink

Mr. Kevin Jackson, Special Education Teacher at Smith Middle School, was featured in the January issue of the online publication Rethink - The First Choice for Inclusive Education.  Jackson was chosen for his success in the classroom using their Rethink program for behavior modification.


The blog stated … Rethink has helped Kevin run more consistent data, which he says has lead to more accountability amongst his students. Not only do students feel more accountable when Kevin can go in and see whether they were actually working, but regularly showing students their own behavior data has helped them take more responsibility for their actions. “They feel more responsible for their own behavior,” said Kevin. “A lot of times seeing is believing. If they see their behavior data and they know their parents are going to see it, they are more motivated and take more responsibility. And when they see that they are doing well, they brag on themselves.”
