With nearly ten years with Conscious Discipline, an intensely responsive presenting style, and over 20 years in early childhood education (including extensive work with Family and Children’s Services, Head Start, and Parents as Teachers), Angela Fraley is a natural choice as an addition to our Loving Guidance Associate family.
Angela completed her undergraduate work at the University of Central Oklahoma to obtain teaching certifications in Elementary Education, Early Childhood, and Mild to Moderate Disabilities. She completed her graduate work at the University of Oklahoma to earn a Master's Degree in Prevention Science and an IC & RC Certified Prevention Specialist credential.
Angela spent the first half of her career teaching pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 3rd grade, and 4th grade in a Tulsa area school, followed by spending nearly a decade in the early childhood program of Community Action Project of Tulsa County. She has experience as a classroom teacher, an instructional coach, and as the agency's Early Childhood Program's Training Specialist. In the training specialist position she trained teachers and staff, as well as worked with children in the Early Head Start and Head Start Programs of Community Action Project of Tulsa County. She also trained for Family & Children’s Services, Parents as Teachers, and other CAP collaborations. She is an IC & RC Certified Prevention Specialist, a National Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor, and a Loving Guidance Associate who enjoys traveling all over the United States to share her passion about Conscious Discipline.
Though she is adept with all age groups, Angela has built her career around a passion for ages 0-5 because she recognizes it as such a critical time in a child’s development. Her engaging, responsive manner of speaking focuses on individualizing both content and style to meet her audience’s needs and provide practical strategies they can implement immediately with the unique children in their care. A Director of Early Learning Services in Texas recently said, “Early Head Start just spent two days with Angela Fraley and they were two of the most exciting, motivating, instructional and fun days we have ever had with a consultant. She was clear, organized, energetic and so very personable. The staff loved that she ‘gets us’.”
