Seroyer’s talk, “Creating a Customized Classroom Management Plan,” will address planning to teach. She will give two presentations — a morning session from 9 a.m. to noon in Doermann Theater and an evening session from 5 to 8 p.m. in Nitschke Hall Auditorium.

The addresses will be followed by question-and-answer sessions. The presentations are free and open to public and private school teachers and administrators, as well as community members throughout the region.

“Seroyer’s presentation will provide our students and area teachers the opportunity to see demonstrations of effective classroom management techniques and how these techniques influence students’ academic performance,” said Dr. Leigh Chiarelott, professor and chair of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the UT Judith Herb College of Education.

Seroyer, a high school English teacher in Madison, Ala., is well-known for her collaboration with Dr. Harry Wong on his book, The First Days of School: How to Be An Effective Teacher. She is the recipient of numerous teaching awards, including the Toyota International Teacher Award and the Patriot Award.

Seroyer’s visit is co-sponsored by the Judith Herb College of Education, the college’s Alumni Affiliate, and UT3 (UToledo, UTeach, UTouch the Future).
