Prairie Rose School Division's teachers and staff in-service was held yesterday in Elm Creek.

Wayne Hulley, President of Canadian Effective Schools, delivered a powerful message.

He uses good humour and simple solutions towards the challenges teachers face today.

Hulley says focusing on one student is much more effective than focusing on everyone.

He stresses focusing your attention on one problem, then applying the skills you have learned to the rest.

Hulley challenged teachers to look at things differently than they did before, then decide how you will fix it.
