Shifting Your Classroom from Control to Connection Will Decrease Problems and Increase Learning
Featuring Sara Chen, Teacher
Berry Elementary in Houston, Texas
When Sara Chen interviewed to teach at Berry Elementary, she was asked if she was willing to trade in her discipline system of colors, clips and conduct sheets for something new: Conscious Discipline. Already frustrated with these methods, she agreed, and the results were life-changing.
Instead of attempting to control her students “from the outside,” Sara’s focus shifted to empowering children to regulate their own upsets and behavior from the inside out. Interactions between children improved and discipline problems decreased, leaving more time for connection, teaching and learning. Watch as Sara shares her stories of success, and learn how you can make the same transformation within yourself, your students, and your classroom.
