As a child, Teresa always dreamed of becoming a teacher. Those early dreams resulted a 44-year career working in schools as a special education teacher and administrator, alternative school principal, and most recently as a school improvement coach. She feels fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Sound Discipline, where she helps educators understand the connections between brain science, attachment and trauma to build strong school communities.
Teresa is passionate about empowering teachers and principals to be the best they can be for student success by helping them to develop new tools for understanding and responding to students. She really enjoys hearing success stories from the educators she works with and seeing their delight when a student is making progress. Teresa believes that, when implemented in concert with other school district and community practices, Sound Discipline's work can have a significant impact on any community in which it takes root.
Teresa sees how Sound Discipline has enabled her to be more understanding and compassionate as a spouse, parent, and family member. Her colleagues describe her as thoughtful, curious, and full of positivity. When not working, Teresa enjoys playing with her family, traveling, swapping stories with friends, and dancing – as long as she can lead!
Corrina is passionate about co-creating experiences that empower people as they learn and grow. For the past 25 years, she has worked as an experiential educator and therapist in a variety of community settings, from wilderness programs to community mental health and education.
At Sound Discipline, Corrina facilitates learning experiences and leadership meetings for educators as they implement strength-based, solution-focused, and trauma-informed practices in the classrooms and schools they serve. She is regularly inspired by the work teachers and school staff do when faced with incredible challenges, and their perseverance and dedication to building more compassionate and healthy communities for all students.
When Corrina is not working, she is happiest when she is paddle boarding and soaking in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
