Sarah has worked in education for over a decade. She spent five years teaching first and second grade and has been an assistant principal for the last nine years. She has had the pleasure of implementing Conscious Discipline in two Title I elementary schools. Sarah holds a B.A. and an M.A. in Teaching from the University of Louisville. She obtained her administrator’s license from Indiana University Southeast.
In 2013, Sarah attended a Conscious Discipline Summer Institute after encouragement from her school’s guidance counselor. After that week, Sarah was determined to return to her school and work to immediately implement Conscious Discipline alongside her principal and counselor. Sarah’s school at the time was Slate Run Elementary. In 2015, Sarah transitioned to Mt. Tabor Elementary, where she also implemented Conscious Discipline.
At both Title I schools, test scores increased, and negative behaviors decreased. In 2015-2016, Mt. Tabor was labeled an “F” school by the state of Indiana. With the implementation of Conscious Discipline and Sarah’s leadership, Mt. Tabor was able to earn an “A” label for the 2016-2017 school year. Today, Sarah has made it her mission to help others experience similar successes and learn a better way with Conscious Discipline.×
