Kim Jackson is a master teacher who is dedicated to providing the very best learning experiences possible for each child in her care. She graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. She has been teaching Pre-kindergarten in the public schools of North and South Carolina for the past 15 years.
As a teacher, Kim’s teaching practices are true to the mission of Conscious Discipline as she inspires teachers and parents alike to think about brain development and guides young children towards independent self-regulation as a foundation for future success in life. Her classroom is the very best representation of how to implement Conscious Discipline with a very broad scope of preschoolers coming from children of cultural, linguistic, and ability diversity.
As a trainer, Kim draws both beginning and experienced teachers in with candor, clarity, humor and humility. Warm stories of her personal experiences, classroom experiences, and her teaching partners and their authentic learning journeys together weave wonderful examples of how to welcome, how to embed and how to embrace Conscious Discipline.
Kim is a part of the NC Preschool Demonstration Program demonstrating “best practices” in action for local, state and national observers on a daily basis and offers coaching and support in modifying their own teaching practices. Kim works closely with local universities and early childhood agencies to support their teacher education programs. She has also provided teacher training on the local, state and national level.×
