Tippecanoe School Corporation
Lafayette, IN
My classroom, called C.L.I.M.B. (Children Learning to Independently Manage Behavior), is an alternative to out-of-school suspension program. It allows our struggling students to stay IN school, while providing them with intensive SEL interventions, ongoing support at the classroom level, and builds a bridge between school and home.
I also serve as a founding member of our Adversity Team, which pilots new programs and provides our staff with ongoing professional development. I serve on our On-Call system which provides immediate assistance to students who need to co-regulate. I am trained in TCIS and Trust Based Relational Intervention. Our school utilizes many layers of support from Tier 1-Tier 3, including applied educational neuroscience, behavior problem solving, Bal-a-Vis-X, calming corners, Playworks, and more. We love to collaborate and are always seeking to learn more from others!
