Laura Angulo was born in Bogotá Colombia and was raised in Florida where she graduated from High School and went on to study Psychology and Special Education at the University of Miami. After working as a Special Education teacher in the Broward County public school system with children with severe and moderate cognitive disabilities, she realized the fundamental importance of early intervention and obtained her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education at UM. During her years at the University of Miami and through her practicum experience in Special Education pre-k classrooms Laura was first introduced to Conscious Discipline in 2004. Her formal training began in 2006 when after attending a two day session with Becky Bailey in Miami, Laura knew that this was the “better way” she wanted to follow and spread.
Since then, Laura has attended several summer institutes as attendee and as a helper and has continued her formal Conscious Discipline training which enabled her to become a Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor in 2015.
With over ten years of experience working in the field of education Laura has been able to apply the knowledge and skills of Conscious Discipline both inside and outside the classroom. Her teaching experience ranges from the infant, toddler and pre-k rooms at Early Beginnings Academy UCP, to 1st, 2nd and 5th grade classrooms at Colegio Tilatá in Bogotá- Colombia. Since 2011 after the birth of her first daughter Laura has expanded her practice of Conscious Discipline to motherhood which has broadened her journey from the “School Family” to her own family and to the homes of the parents that she currently serves.
Laura has been living in Bogotá – Colombia since 2006 where she has dedicated her life to her two daughters, and her career to enhancing the quality of life for young children and their families through her parent coaching and teacher trainings. Laura has provided training for teachers and parents at various sites throughout Bogotá including Misi Baby Spa, Arca de Noe , ADVENIO Colombia and other private trainings. She is currently working with ADVENIO Colombia in the process of transforming five of their daycare and preschool sites to Conscious Discipline®. Laura’s goal is to continue to help spread the knowledge and strategies of Conscious Discipline in Colombia so that new generations can be raised in safety and connection.×
