Award Winning Teacher Launches Smart Start Challenge Handbook and Virtual Class for Struggling High School Students

There are many high school students today who struggle with academics, and even figuring out their dreams and identities. Ms. Kirsten Peck, a FLA certified teacher and growth mindset coach specializes in helping students walk on the path to success. Ms. Peck has created the “Smart Start Challenge Handbook: 31 Days of Brain Training” and a related online classroom event.

Although virtual education has emerged as a savior for students, many young people struggle with academic pressure and life goals. The teen life coaching program is developed and tested in the classroom, and the Smart Start Challenge is an innovative solution to the problems of many high school students. 

For those who need a self-help boost, the Smart Start Challenge is a special, 31-day event, an online coaching workshop with engaging activities and daily sessions. Ms. Peck hosts the “Homeroom for Success,” where under-achieving and unhappy students learn to focus and stay motivated to achieve success. Students write their answers and keep their score in the Handbook spending 15 minutes every day to build skills and confidence. 

Ms. Peck has worked closely for years to close the achievement gap and resolve the problems faced by high school students. The personal growth workout is precisely what they need, helping students discover their identity, concentrate and improve their studying skills with ways to train their mind and body. 

When you know what the rules are and what you need to do to win, then it just takes practice to make it a reality. Anything is possible,” says Ms. Peck.
