Mary’s experience with Conscious Discipline began when she became an Education Consultant at Oakland Schools Intermediate School District, a resource center to 28 public school districts in Oakland, County MI. Mary had been a PK and Elementary teacher for over 24 years in 6 different states in public, private, and parochial schools. She had always searched for a better way to help children grow socially and emotionally. She wanted to know more about how to help children develop self-regulation and stronger executive skills. When introduced to Conscious Discipline she knew she had found the way!!! An added benefit was her own personal and professional growth in becoming aware of her own behaviors and how they influenced herself and others.
Since then Mary has been the guide for teachers, paras, administrators, and parents to learn the Powers, Skills and Strategies of Conscious Discipline for 15 years. She is acclaimed for her connecting teaching style. She’s known for bringing Conscious Discipline alive through her playfulness, storytelling, humor and real life examples.
