Diana Brown, M.Ed has been a professional educator since 1988. She has a B.A. from Arizona State University and an M.A. from Northern Arizona University. As a classroom teacher, she realized that managing student behavior was the number one concern of educators. The majority of classroom management systems had children asking, “What do I get if I’m good,” or “What will happen to me if I’m bad?” The search was on to find a better way to interact with children and reconnect to the joy of teaching. This understanding and passion for social emotional learning led Diana to certification in Conscious Discipline® in 2002.
