These common core hands-on business lessons focus on students learning the definition of stress, understanding how it can affect a person’s emotional and physical well-being and finding overall solutions to reduce and eliminate the stress.  Students will create a “STRESS” business flyer using a step-by-step rubric.


My published, Managing the Classroom guide allows teachers to create a student-centered classroom like a business, using manager jobs. It will help you structure your lessons in an exciting way as students apply business principles to any subject you teach in grades K-12. This education guide is revolutionary and will make a huge impact within your classroom and lead students to a career-ready future, while integrating restorative practices, economic development, and culture proficiency.


To create a real-world experience, I have added BOSS TIPS and MANAGER TIPS so you better understand how to communicate to your students in a business-like setting. You can review written testimonials and videos on my website:
