Facilitator Information: 
Jody Malterre MAEd, Certified Positive Discipline Trainer for Parents, Teachers and Early Childhood Educators. 
I've enjoyed work both as a Positive Discipline Trainer and a Montessori teacher trainer for many years. This work has given me opportunities to help teachers, administrators and parents. 
While my work as a trainer has been in the US and Internationally, my favorite place to work is in my community of Boise, Idaho.  When home, I regularly offer classes to parents and teachers and provide one on one coaching.  It is through my experiences as a classroom teacher, administrator, trainer, and most importantly, a parent of two daughters, that I draw upon stories and experiences to help others.  I also help businesses using my skills as a facilitator of Empowering People in the Workplace. 
I hold a certificate in Adlerian Studies through the Idaho Society of Individual Psychology and a Montessori credential for kids ages 2-12.  Currently I enjoy serving as a Co-Board Chair for the Positive Discipline Association and as a Co-Chair of the Educators Section of North American Adlerian Society of Adlerian Psychologists (NASAP).

Workshop Description:

This interactive on-line live workshop is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age. (Parents will also find this workshop helpful; however, the focus is on early childhood education.) Participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how young children learn, the importance of belonging and social and emotional learning, and how best to teach those skills in a classroom or care setting. Participants will earn recognition as Certified Positive Discipline Early Childhood Educators and will learn to:

  1. Create a classroom or care setting where children can develop a sense of belonging and significance based on the importance of contribution and mutual respect.
  2. Understand how young children learn and how to adapt teaching to the needs of this age group.
  3. Foster essential social and emotional skills to support development and school readiness, and understand behavior and how to guide it in groups of young children.
  4. Teach the essential skills for developmentally appropriate participation in class meetings.
  5. Learn Positive Discipline and Adlerian concepts for use in the classroom, preschool community, and with parents.
