Conscious Discipline was the answer when Jane Plum searched for a program to meet the classroom management and social/emotional curriculum needs at the preschool where she serves as director. Since she made that discovery in 2006, she has been passionate about her personal Conscious Discipline journey. After watching the many successes in her school, her goal has become sharing Conscious Discipline with others.
