Your Facilitators

Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor Jenny Barkac will draw on her personal experience as a classroom teacher, behavior interventionist and longtime Conscious Discipline practitioner to help you understand and apply Conscious Discipline with tiered systems.

What are Tiered Systems?

Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS), Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) are tiered systems for supporting student growth. MTSS brings RTI and PBIS together to use data to match students’ academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs with instructional resources to provide differentiated support.

Strengthen your use of tiered systems and ensure student achievement by integrating Conscious Discipline into your practices.

  • Discover how using a tiered level of support system to differentiate instruction can help students manage and regulate their nervous systems.
  • Explore the Conscious Discipline Brain State Model to understand how brain states impact behavior, and the ability to access and process information (learning).
