Facilitator(s): Penny Davis, MA, CPDLT
1306 Dupont Street
Bellingham, WA, USA
Penny has been facilitating parenting education and teacher training using Adlerian concepts for over 35 years. She became a certified Positive Discipline trainer in 2001 and has been a Lead Trainer for the Positive Discipline Association for the past 10 years. When she and her husband relocated to the Pacific Northwest from Southern California in 2012, she decided to retire from full time work to become a facilitator for Sound Discipline.
For Penny, it's Sound Discipline's practical tools of Positive Discipline along with the trauma-Informed data that is having such a powerful and positive effect on how staff understand their students. It has encouraged and allowed her to dig deeply into public education and learn a great deal about the challenges facing public school teachers. It has also enhanced Penny's learning around issues of equity and cultural competence. Ultimately, Penny believes when schools and families begin to shift towards strength-based, encouraging ways of connecting, a new and more welcoming sense of community emerges.
As a semi-retiree, she enjoys leisurely mornings spent drinking coffee while reading the newspaper. On nice days, she likes to garden or go for long walks around the neighborhood with her dog. When she's feeling more adventurous and Sound Discipline can spare her absence, she enjoys traveling the globe including stints teaching Positive Discipline in China.
