Community college teacher and community facilitator for Edutopia. Formerly a school leader at a small alternative therapeutic high school near Burlington, Vermont. I believe that all students need a safe and caring school environment. We create this environment through unconditional positive regard for the person and conditional response to the behaviors, recognizing the dynamic and complex lives of our students.
