Brian Mendler was a kid who created challenges for teachers. As an adult, he became a special education teacher and now teaches teachers and administrators how to work with kids like him. He is the author of the book The Taming of the Crew which provides educators with easy to use strategies for preventing and responding to difficult, disruptive, defiant and unmotivated behavior.
