Positive Discipline Educator Coaching

Positive Discipline Coaching for Educators is a powerful option designed to help teachers and other school personnel increase their effectiveness and fulfillment in the classroom.  Educator coaching can be the perfect answer for those who have read Positive Discipline books or taken a Positive Discipline in the Classroom workshop and put this model into practice in their own classroom. It can offer direction and support if you:

  • Need clarification on a topic.

  • Are facing a challenge and need help.

  • Just have questions.

Our Educator Coaches are certified as either a Certified Positive Discipline Trainer or Lead Trainer.  With diverse backgrounds and depth of understanding, they are there to listen, give objective feedback, and to encourage and support.  Because of their training, experience, and wisdom, our coaches are skilled at helping the teacher with:
  • Gaining increased understanding of new processes and perspectives.  
  • Integrating the PD model and principles into daily activities.
  • Coalescing classroom experiences into a rich, effective and fun learning process for all.
  • Creating a personalized process that works for individual classrooms.
By teachers gaining increased competency and effectiveness, students will achieve more and develop skills for communication, problem solving and conflict resolution that will last throughout their lives.
