Having served as teacher and principal in all levels of grades 1 through 12, as well as teaching college courses, Dr. Bill Behrens is an expert in True Colors.The True Colors concept of personality has become the basis for his life's work of helping people to understand themselves and others and to appreciate the differences.
Dr. Behrens has been presenting seminars, training facilitators, and writing and approving books and courses for True Colors since 1987.As one of the original creators of the True Colors Training Programs, Dr. Behrens, who is currently Director of Training for True Colors, Inc. and Principal of Orrenmaa Elementary School in Alvord Unified School District, Riverside, CA, has experienced a variety of positive results presenting True Colors in countless schools, as well as hundreds of other organizations.
"I believe we can no longer have a myopic view of how we present information to students," explains Dr. Behrens."We need to understand that individuals receive and understand from different vantage points.True Colors creates a healthy learning environment in each school and organization.I believe it is our job to help students enjoy the educational experience, and True Colors provides that opportunity."
Dr. Behrens has had a number of professional successes, including helping to create a "California Distinguished School", designated for providing "outstanding educational opportunities for all students".True Colors was part of the turn-around program for Spring View Middle School in the Ocean View School District of Southern California.Serving as Principal, Dr. Behrens was able to increase collaboration in a diverse staff of new and veteran teachers.He trained the teachers, staff and students in True Colors and changed the instructional patterns of the school resulting in a more harmonious environment.
The next challenge came in the form 20,000 students in the Alvord Unified School District in Riverside, CA.Dr. Behrens became Administrator for the Personnel Division, charged with setting up the first "Staff Development Program" for 700 classified employees, including secretaries, custodians, etc., all members of the California School Employees Association.Through his program, which included True Colors, the atmosphere of the schools changed immediately.Four years ago, he became Principal of Orrenmaa Elementary School with 1000 students.His orientation program included True Colors.The first year, he introduced the True Colors Basic Awareness Seminar in the first half of the "in-service" day.The second year he presented a refresher course.Last year he presented True Colors Teambuilding, and this year he will introduce True Colors Teaching/Learning Styles.
Each year Dr. Behrens gives each teacher and staff member his list of "Certificated Expectations".When viewing the list, it becomes evident that each person needs to have an understanding of different personality types, and thus True Colors.He considers safety to be number one on the list, followed by "knowing your kids, and treat them like your own."He expects teachers to plan lessons that address all temperaments.He requires that they use a variety of teaching techniques/strategies, and create an enlivened environment.

However, it's not a discreet thing," said Bill Behrens, director of secondary education at Alvord Unified School District in Riverside and Corona.
"It's interwoven into the lessons," he said, echoing other educators.
"There's been a shift even in the terminology that we use," said Behrens, the Alvord administrator, who has worked in education for 28 years. He added, "everyone has a story."
