May Spotlight on an Arkansas PBIS Coach

Kimberly Luellen

Blytheville Middle School
7th Grade Literacy Teacher
Culture Team Co-Chair

Coach Luellen’s Favorite Thing about PBIS:

PBIS allows the flexibility to target students’ needs and wants which ultimately leads to relationship building among student and teachers as well as among staff.

Coach Luellen’s PBIS Coaching Tips:

  • Use the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) to pinpoint areas in which to focus and build secure foundational systems.
  • Focus on staff buy-in and systems to support fidelity of implementation; this will go a long way toward seeing improvement.
