About Me

Hi there! My name is Jenny, and I am the owner of Ignite Learning with Conscious Discipline® LLC. I am the mother of two little (ok well maybe not so little anymore) redheads, wife to Mr. Ed, and teacher to many.  When I'm not playing wife, mom,  teacher, or trainer, you will find me in a quiet place with a warm cup of MUGS coffee listening to some of my favorite music or reading a good book.  As much as I love being with people, I also need my quiet time! :)

Have you ever had an attitude like "I already know everything I need to know about...." Several years ago, I happened across this workshop at the State AEYC conference that I really didn't think I needed. It was titled something like "How to handle all the Fussing, Fighting, Fits, and Tantrums." My first thought was, "I don't need that. I've got everything under control." After all, my undergrad was in Special Education (we spent a whole semester on behavior management) and my Masters was in Early Childhood...what could they possibly teach me? My co-worker talked me in to attending with her and I found out that day that I had a LOT to learn. Come to find out the workshop was about Conscious Discipline® and once I had been given a little nibble, I wanted a WHOLE bite!

What started as a journey to find a better way to discipline and manage my classroom quickly became a personal journey.  It is amazing to see how the skills I have learned in Conscious Discipline® have affected my personal growth. Now, instead of throwing "adult-sized" tantrums when the world doesn't go my way I have some real skills to use.  Conscious Discipline® has helped me discover innate skills God has given me to use as tools to help me be a wife, parent, teacher, and friend they way He intended. 

As I learn how to live in the present moment I experience more peace and joy in life.  I am learning that I no longer have to control every detail of life in order to find happiness. I am more likely to allow myself to make mistakes and say, "oops!" and see it as an opportunity to learn (well, most of the time).  Conscious Discipline® has changed my life.  I praise God for the opportunities He has given and I want to share that with others.
