U RSALA B URNS T EACHER I’m thrilled to be working at Ereckson as the PAS teacher! This is my 11th year teaching. I’m a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin where I met and married my college sweetheart, Dwight. We have three kids. Ari is our oldest and is a freshman at UT Austin majoring in music. Lex is our middle child and is a sophomore at Allen High School. Our youngest child, Kara, is a 7 th grader here at Ereckson.
PAS P ROGRAM P OSITIVE A TTITUDES FOR S UCCESS The PAS program uses the Boys Town Education Model. It is based on four components. 1. Social Skills Curriculum 2. Teaching Interactions 3. The motivation System 4. Administrative Intervention Students are required to carry their own Daily Points cards. Students are praised for their positive behavior, resulting in positive points. Students are penalized for their negative behavior, resulting in negative points. Students are able to earn back up to half of their negative points if they are able to identify and correct their negative behavior. Students should earn an average of 25,000 to 30,000 points per day.
