When Myrna McCulloch began to work with her teachers to implement this method at a little private school in Omaha, Nebraska in 1977, she worried about getting everything just right. Although her teachers had received the recommended 40-hours of training from Oma Riggs herself, McCulloch still worried. Because she wanted her teachers to do a perfect job, she worried and worried.
Sometimes I get a phone call, sometimes a text, and sometimes the call comes via email or in person during one of our training workshops, but however it comes, it often includes a request for a cheat sheet--for some version of a “Rules for Riggs teachers” list. Over and over again, people want to know what’s non-negotiable.
