I embarked on my self-regulation journey a few years ago with Stace. I was a busy Program Support Teacher who did not have a minute to spare and I did not know what to expect from my conferences, meetings, and workshops with Stace. Three years later, I have come to the realization that Stace’s work is one of the most influential pieces of professional development that I have been a part of in my career. First, and most importantly, it had a profound impact on my professional and personal well-being. It has also greatly enhanced my knowledge on self-regulation and mindfulness as well as giving me confidence in my role as a self-regulation leader in my school.
Stace acknowledges that school personnel need to learn how to be better at self-regulating in order to be better role models for our students. Indeed, it is crucial that we learn how to take care of ourselves in order to be able to take care of children. When surrounded by adults who are calm, available, and poised, students are given the opportunity to grow up in safe and caring environment where they can strive personally and academically.
I highly recommend Stace, a great person, a great approach, a great collaborator.
