Alice Mercer Elementary Computer Lab Teacher

My name is Alice Mercer. I've been teaching since 1997. Although my experience has featured some real classroom management challenges, (three years at a behavior school), my role here is as an every woman foil to the resident expert, Larry Ferlazzo. Sometimes I'll provide suggestions and answers, other times I'll be asking questions, because I'm that kind of person.

Love and Logic

The best skills I have ever learned for dealing with students and people in general came from the wonderful folks at the Love and Logic Institute in Golden CO. If you're not familiar with Jim and Charles Fay, then you need to pick up the book "Teaching with Love and Logic"; it can be found at www.loveandlogic.com.

I've trained numerous teachers with their DVD professional development series and have seen amazing results from kindergarten to alternative high school students.
