“Hillcrest Elementary is located in Lawrence, Kansas and serves students from all over the world. We are currently working to redesign our school following the principals from the Kansas Can Vision. We are focusing on social and emotional learning as an essential skill in our classrooms. We are implementing Conscious Discipline by Dr. Becky Bailey. This program empowers teachers to use brain-based techniques to teach skills to students. This grant allows for our Social and Emotional Learning team of teacher leaders to attend the Summer Institute and learn more about Conscious Discipline from Dr. Bailey.”
