Assistant Professor,
Portland State University

Life happens outside of school, and sometimes it can get in the way of completing assignments on time.

That’s why Dr. Lainey Sevillano of Portland State University offers a “Life Happened” card, which allows students to get points back on late assignments.

Learn more about Dr. Sevillano’s approach to creating a culture of classroom care in her free ebook.

The most memorable teachers are often the ones who care about their students as people, not just as learners.
