"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

From a speech given by Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa



Brigitte Thompson graduated from JCE with an Higher Diploma Education Senior Primary in 1996. Whilst teaching at Buccleuch Primary she studied further and graduated from UNISA with a B A ED majoring in Education and English. She then left South Africa to go and travel, in London she taught at 74 schools in two years before moving to Scotland to teach at a school (as part of a trouble shooting team) that had failed its Ofsted inspection because of discipline. Whilst at this school she did her first Assertive Discipline course. She was then head hunted by the principal of a Behaviour Unit where she worked for three years. The unit was a rehabilitation centre designed to work with difficult learners and because of Assertive Discipline, 80% of the learners were sent back to mainstream schools successfully. Because of the nature of this job, lots of additional training was provided for the staff and Brigitte did numerous courses in Autism, Dyslexia, Behaviour Management and Inclusion. (Read more...)
