Some people go through life wondering what their purpose in life is… Dr. Hunt knows her purpose is to teach! As a professor, credentialed school administrator, and teacher for 20+ years she is a life-long learner who is passionate about growing knowledge to help you train your brain and influence behavior! How do we do this you ask? Dr. Hunt partners with leaders and students to improve performance, conflict resolution, retention, study habits, GPA, understanding of personal strengths, communication, and relationships through tools such as:
DISC Personality System- DISC can be used by teachers and administrators to assess students’ communication styles and create an environment to share and discuss diversity. Students can understand that each style has strengths that are uniquely equal, including capacities, giftings and value.
Here are four ways DISC can be used with students:
#1 – DISC can be taught as a language
#2 – DISC is a tool for diversity awareness
#3- DISC concentrates on positive strengths
#4 – DISC can help reduce misunderstandings to resolve conflicts
StudentKeys- The StudentKeys program includes both Student and Leader’s binders, designed to improve retention, study habits, GPA, understanding of personal strengths, communication, relationships and performance for students. This includes 6 student workbooks in a 3-ring binder (Personality Style, Perceptual Learning Style, Cognitive Thinking Style, Values Style, Career Choice, and Goal Setting).
Behavioral Awareness in School- Today, conflict resolution, communication and empathy enhancement should be a proactive program in every primary and secondary school in America as a preventative measure. Immediate and small strategies can lead to larger social changes. Teachers must imbed behavioral awareness in curriculum and when working with students.
40 Developmental Assets- Search Institute has identified 40 positive supports and strengths that young people need to succeed. Half of the assets focus on the relationships and opportunities they need in their families, schools, and communities (external assets). The remaining assets focus on the social-emotional strengths, values, and commitments that are nurtured within young people (internal assets).
Understanding the Framework of Poverty- If you work with people from poverty, some understanding of how different their world is from yours will be invaluable. Whether you're an educator or a social, health, or legal services professional--this knowledge gives you practical, real-world support and guidance to improve your effectiveness in working with people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Since 1995 A Framework for Understanding Poverty by Dr. Ruby Payne has guided hundreds of thousands of educators and other professionals through the pitfalls and barriers faced by all classes, especially the poor.
