Carol McClintic


Carol McClintic taught for 35 years in the public education system, from preschool to university extension classes. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from South Dakota State University and her Master of Arts degree from California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB). She was part of her District Leadership Team and conducted many workshops for the district and for the University of California, Riverside; the University of California, Los Angeles; and CSUSB on topics such as conflict resolution. As an elementary and middle school teacher, she initiated use of the APA method discussed in these pages and saw immediate results: not only did her students' discipline problems disappear, but her students also developed valuable skills in managing their emotions and handling social situations.
