MS. VAL

VaLarie is a highly sought-after DISC facilitator specializing in DISC-influenced teaching with 35 years of experience in education. In DISC Influenced Teaching, behavioral differences are utilized to build student-teacher relationships, increase dialogue, and create a supportive and engaging learning environment.

 

She serves as an Educational Consultant assisting educators with connecting with students and staff members who do not look like themselves. She has spent over 35 years in the education field, and she can empower others through her words and energy. Besides being a great speaker and facilitator, she is also a best-selling author, an impacting teacher, and a transformational coach. During her college years, she developed her "GRIT" which helps her work with students labeled "at risk." After her first semester at college, she was academically suspended following a 0.923 grade point average (take a look at her shirt...it looks like an S on her chest. Her past has made her better). It is through this experience that she can foster an understanding of the connections and interplay between technology, pedagogy, and curriculum and the process changes necessary to shift the focus from teaching to learning. With hands-on, learning-centered, and job-embedded experiences, VaLarie works with teachers and administrators to create patterns and pathways for students to be more successful. 

 

There was no instruction given to VaLarie about her superpower of speaking. In grade school, she was told that she talked too much by her teachers, and that caused her to try to correct it for many years. As a result of the DISC Assessment, she could affirm that talking was a superpower rather than a problem. Understanding that she had a superpower, she was later able to provide teachers with a cheat code for building student-teacher relationships, increasing dialogue, and creating a supportive and engaging learning environment.
