Positive Team Classroom Management System (PTCMS)
Scott Ricardo, the Founder and President of Summer Institutes, has taken his 45-years of teaching and coaching experience and coupled it with PBIS and restorative justice principles, to develop a proven system to establish high-classroom behavior for middle-school students. His Positive Team Classroom Management System (PTCMS) helps equip K-12 teachers to quickly build caring teamwork and restorative discipline in their classrooms so they can maximize their teaching time without so many distractions.
In a recent 8th grade classroom evaluation, the evaluator noted the incredibly quick response from students at the onset of the class period. On Ricardo’s cue, “I am now ready to instruct,” the classroom fell completely quiet within two-seconds and one-hundred percent of Ricardo’s students were staring directly at him and listening with full attention. “I was very impressed with how quickly Mr. Ricardo had full control of the class and the daily activities began.”
Ricardo’s philosophy is to incorporate the well-known principles of PBIS training and restorative education, but to establish a creative and disciplined management style that builds a caring team culture of learning at a faster than normal rate.
“I believe in all the principles we’re learning as educators, but I also believe we need to get results more quickly. We can’t continually use significant portions of our limited class time repeating things we should have built into our classroom culture by the end of the first week. Time is our most valuable asset.”
