As a former owner/director of an early childhood school in her hometown for over 17 years, Mary's four decades as an educator included being a Head Start teacher, then Education Director, a kindergarten and middle school English teacher, 18 years as a college professor and in her retirement she has served as a past co-chair of the Positive Discipline Association.
Her enthusiasm for Positive Discipline has given her the opportunity to share with teachers in the public and private sector. She has presented at early childhood conferences in Kentucky and has provided training for teachers, school counselors, administrators, and social workers working in shelter homes for young adults. Montessori, Head Start and Catholic school teachers have had the opportunity to learn new tools for their "tool belt" from Mary. Teachers learn to "step into the shoes" of their students to encourage respect, resilience, responsibility, problem solving and most of all peaceful coexistence.
This two-day interactive workshop is designed for teachers, counselors, school staff and administrators who want an effective discipline approach that integrates social and emotional learning while reducing challenging student behaviors. Attendees will earn recognition as a Certified Positive Discipline Classroom Educator and will learn to:
- Develop a large teaching toolbox of kind and firm discipline approaches.
- Establish explicit classroom structures and procedures.
- Create an equitable classroom community based on mutual respect.
- Understand the motivation behind students' misbehavior and how to encourage positive change.
- Facilitate effective class meetings teaching social skills and problem-solving.
- Learn Positive Discipline/Adlerian Psychology for use in the classroom and school community.
- Gain information on how to address the effects of childhood trauma and insecure attachment.
