Facilitated By: Lisa Cranston, Self-Reg Learning Facilitator with the MEHRIT Centre
Do you feel that the past two years have been unusually stressful for early years professionals? Have you found yourself putting more energy into “putting out fires,” and “managing behaviours” at the expense of energy you’d like to have for building positive relationships with children and engaging in their learning? Then this session is for you!
Lisa Cranston will share proactive ways to build relationships and effectively engage with young children in early childhood settings. She will introduce us to Shanker Self-Reg® and show how it provides knowledge and strategies that can help early learning professionals support children and their families as well as reap the benefits of self-reg for themselves.
Lisa Cranston is a recently retired educator with over thirty years of experience. She has taught grades kindergarten to four and worked as an instructional coach for literacy and mathematics. Lisa spent the last eleven years of her career in education as the educational consultant for kindergarten and primary grades and led the implementation of Full-Day Kindergarten for her school board from 2010 – 2015. Lisa believes that Shanker Self-Reg® has changed how she views both her own behaviour and that of others, and her goal is to help others to ‘lend their calm’ to those around them. Lisa blogs about her Self-Reg reflections and learning at https://lisacran.blogspot.com
Lisa recently completed a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership at Western University, studying policy enactment of self-regulation curriculum expectations in kindergarten.
