A New Approach to Teaching

Take your classroom experience from average to phenomenal.



When communication is successful, both the student and the teacher profit. Effective communication uncomplicates learning, helps students set and accomplish their goals, increases chances for independent learning, strengthens the connection between student and teacher, and creates an overall phenomenal experience.


A connection is important for the academic and mental wellbeing of students. Building a relationship with your students is essential in preventing behavioral issues. Students are more motivated to perform in classes if they know their teacher cares about them and will help them succeed in and out of the classroom. Creating a connection with your students will inevitably improve academic achievement.


To captivate your student's attention means to attract and hold the interest and maintain student interest in learning. You stimulate and engage students by cultivating a strong desire to know or learn something. Captivation is imperative in making lessons interesting, relevant, and enjoyable.


Collaboration is beneficial when planning activities. It allows students to work effectively and efficiently together while they learn from and grow with each other. Collaborative learning has proven to not only develop higher-level thinking skills in students, but it improves their levels of confidence and self-esteem as well.

Which would you prefer: an average or PHENOMENAL experience for you and your students?

The Extreme Teachers Certification is an exclusive training experience. The Certification creates a unique experience that uses the DISC Assessment as a tool to help educators identify their behavior styles, communication styles, and learning styles and more; which we call “superpowers”. As a result, classrooms, schools, and districts are consistently able to increase productivity, improve their leadership style, and provide more effective communication both in and outside of the classroom. Additionally, the transformational growth that results from learning and applying the knowledge gained is a lifelong benefit both your students and faculty will enjoy.

With access to this tool, your classroom will gain the upper hand in education as you'll have a better understanding of how behavior styles drive perceptions and behaviors. At the close of the training, you will be an officially Certified Extreme Teacher.
