Sharon Baptist Head Start is a leading provider of EDUCATION: Day Care/Preschool for the families in Bronx, NY.
When talking about our focus, Priya Mendez, Ex – Director of Education at Campus IV – Bathgate Avenue, liked to quote Mahatma Gandhi who said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” It is with this premise that Sharon Baptist Head Start ventured on a new journey to create for our scholars, families, and colleagues this NEW paradigm of CONSCIOUS DISCIPLINE.
We define CONSCIOUS DISCIPLINE accordingly:
- Conscious – an adjective meaning aware of and responding to one’s surroundings, awake.
- Discipline – a noun that can mean activity, exercise, or a regiment that develops or improves a skill; training.
Ask yourself, “Would I rather have children, staff, parents and managers say, ‘What do I get if I’m good or do what is right?’ or ‘How do I give of my goodness?’” How you answer this question will determine that school climate and culture you want to create.
“Relating this to the children, staff, and other adults associated with Sharon Baptist, school climate impacts all achievement, the adults as well as the children. The culture of a school can foster adult and childhood bullying, blame and cliques, or it can build cooperation, willingness, and responsibility. The School Family creates a fundamental shift in education, classroom, and agency management. Leave coercion, fear and external rewards behind, and step into the world where intrinsic motivation, helpfulness, problem-solving, and connection” lives (Conscious Discipline website).
