As reSTART Serenity Mountain continues to grow, it is exciting to announce the expansion of the education team with the addition of Madelyn Jansma, MEd. She joins as lead teaching staff and parent coordinator. Madelyn holds current teaching certification in 4-12 Mathematics and Physics. Her experience is vast, including coaching thousands of teachers and parents in the Puget Sound region of Washington as an Institute-trained Love and Logic facilitator and has consulted on classroom management for several school programs. She has taught middle school; volunteered with homeless youth, kids with special needs, and incarcerated teens; served as a director for a 22-classroom early childhood program; is a certified DiSC® facilitator and loves being a mom to two college-age kids.
Madelyn has transitioned into the classroom this past week. She is ensuring that the classroom environment is a warm, welcoming and safe space where students are supported, encouraged, and have every opportunity to succeed. She and her fellow education coaches are delighted to be working with reSTART students, and taking advantage of every possible teaching moment. Madelyn is also helping the students with their planning, prioritation and self-management. She sees everyday as a fresh opportunity for students to make great decisions and a new opportunity to choose to succeed academically.
