Time, it has been said, is the coin of learning. Yet every teacher has known the frustration of losing valuable instructional time to matters of discipline, just as every student has known the frustration of losing valuable learning time to matters of discipline. For some teachers and for some students, the amount of time lost is very great.
The Center promotes Time To Teach, a highly effective program that was initially developed over 27 years ago with the help and guidance of Dr. Madeline Hunter and Coach John Wooden, both of UCLA. Time To Teach is a program proven to restore that lost time to teachers and students in a way that is simple, fair, and mutually respectful. We believe that it can be effective for you in your unique situation.

“What a wonderful seminar. What a useful seminar! [We experienced] the most powerful solution to problem behavior I’ve ever heard of. I wish I would have learned this stuff in college.”
“My principal requested that I attend this seminar…quite frankly because I was on professional assistance. After struggling for two years with discipline issues, I finally have a plan that will work for myself and my students. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart…”
“Unbelievable! Our teachers were taught how to restore civility in their classrooms, gave us tons of useful and practical tips, and was funny and entertaining! The seminar was riddled with tools and techniques that our teachers will use on a daily basis.”
“Wow! Learn how to “draw a line in the sand in your classroom,” have high standards and happy students. What more could you ask for?! ”
“I am a thirty year veteran. I thought I’d seen all…done all. However, I learned more today about successfully managing my classroom than I have in thirty-seven years of experience. Maybe I’ll sign on for another five years!”
“Funny. Very, very funny. Informative. Very, very informative. Just what I expected from a top rated seminar, and they delivered.”
“… a very complex issue (classroom discipline) was reduced to an understandable, very easy set of strategies that any classroom teacher can use. I can’t wait to start school on Monday and try this out!”
