Since committing to a career in education, Deneen's primary curiosity has been around how we create the space and conditions for students to co-create their own learning alongside educators. Along the way, she has searched for doors she could open where that conversation and work could flourish. As a facilitator with Sound Discipline, Deneen invites adults to examine the ways in which they are showing up with the children in their lives and how, when we live with intention and mindfulness, we can make a difference for young people, even those affected by trauma.
While she is keenly aware of the challenges educators face, Deneen believes deeply in the transformative potential of this work. She is grateful to contribute to the planting of healthy seeds in our communities, supporting adults to show up over and over and over in ways that teach empathy, compassion, problem-solving and repairing our mistakes. Deneen's work with Sound Discipline has helped her to develop a deeper understanding of her place in the larger social structure, and she strives to shine a light on systems of inequity and teach the leaders of those systems how to shift the balance of power so that every human being may thrive.
Deneen tries every day to put her learning into practice with her 9-year-old daughter to support her journey in becoming a whole-hearted woman (though she admits that some days are more successful than others). She enjoys snowboarding, yoga, listening to jazz, and dancing with her daughter. Her colleagues describe her as lively, spirited, joyful – and as having the best laugh, ever.
This two-day interactive workshop is designed for teachers, counselors, school staff and administrators who want an effective discipline approach that integrates social and emotional learning while reducing challenging student behaviors. Attendees will earn recognition as a Certified Positive Discipline Classroom Educator and will learn to:
- Develop a large teaching toolbox of kind and firm discipline approaches.
- Establish explicit classroom structures and procedures.
- Create an equitable classroom community based on mutual respect.
- Understand the motivation behind students' misbehavior and how to encourage positive change.
