Yay! The webinar is here!

By Angela Watson

What is a Webinar?

The term webinar is short for web seminar, and it’s an online version of a professional development event. I decided to create The Cornerstone Pro-Active Behavior Management Webinar after getting workshop requests from educators in areas that I can’t easily visit–from small American towns to Uganda to the Phillipines to Brazil. Why not take advantage of the Internet as a truly cost-effective way to reach teachers all over the world?

Why Watch a Webinar?

If you’ve ever fallen asleep in a workshop or sat there fuming with rage about how the day could have been more enjoyably and productively spent at the dentist’s office, you understand that high-quality, engaging professional development is hard to come by. Many times, teachers don’t get a say about the workshop’s topic, much less its date and time.

So what if you could attend a professional development session on a topic that’s relevant to your everyday work and could make an immediate and profound impact on the way your classroom runs? What if you could attend any time you choose, and go back and re-watch any parts that were particularly helpful? And what if you could watch from the comfort of your couch while gorging on your favorite snack foods?

That’s what you get when you purchase this webinar: the convenience of on-demand professional development from someone you already know and trust to deliver a product that’s relevant and practical. If the resources on this website and in The Cornerstone book make sense to you and work with your students, then you know the webinar’s going to provide even more solid advice.

What’s the Webinar About?

The Cornerstone Pro-Active Behavior Management Webinar is a series of 5 webinar sessions that are designed to help you construct a self-running classroom that frees you to teach. The focus is on teaching students to become responsible and self-reliant, and helping you maximize your instructional time. It’s designed for teachers who work with students aged 4-11.

  1. Angela,
    I bought your book on Amazon and downloaded it to my Kindle a few months back. It really is a wonderful resource, and I have shared it with many of my colleagues in hopes that they will purchase it as well. What a time saver it is! Thank you for the work and effort you put forth to ensure that more educators are able to do their best in the classroom. Can’t wait to watch this webinar! Thanks again and may God continue to bless you and your family.
