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.
She began working with Renate and Geoffrey Caine in
1992 with a five-year restructuring grant for a new middle
school and was a senior associate with Caine Learning.
Presently she is the director of programs for educators and
independent learning for the Natural Learning Research
Institute (www.nlri.org) as well as the secretary/treasurer for
the NLRI Board of Directors.
