More About Ida Bauer arrow-right

Ida Bauer holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and has spent over 30 years working in public and private schools.  Ida has experience in the organization and development of early learning centers including budgeting, marketing and staff training.   She has spent the last 20 years as the Director of the Family Development Center (FDC) at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs where she implemented Conscious Discipline.  Ida was first introduced to Conscious Discipline in 2011 and knew immediately that she had found a program and philosophy that would not only change her own life but one that she could use to help children, teachers and families at the FDC.  Ida’s implementation of Conscious Discipline at the FDC dramatically improved program quality and helped staff, children and parents to find positive solutions to challenging situations.  It also increased parent and staff satisfaction and staff-retention resulting in capacity enrollment and a long wait-list for the 124 spaces at the FDC.

Ida has spent the last 6 years learning and teaching Conscious Discipline to teachers, home-care providers, college students,  faculty and staff, social workers, psychologists and counsellors.  Her goal is to share this important message with all who are interested in finding a better way to deal with life’s problems and frustrations.  Her experience as the Director of a facility allows her to draw on real life events as well as to intimately understand what challenges parents, educators and administrators are faced with on a daily basis.   Her ability to relate to others and to impart knowledge in an interesting, humorous and dynamic way have made her a sought after speaker.  Her insight and passion for Conscious Discipline make her a natural choice for any organization looking to provide staff training with the end result of upgrading programs for optimal children’s outcomes using the most current information on brain research and brain development.
