Board Certified Educational Therapist
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Sandra Clifton, a Board Certified Educational Therapist and founder of Clifton Corner in Scarsdale, New York.
- How Sandra was one of the first to call herself an academic coach
- Why Sandra went against the deficit model of education to a strengths model
- The (inspiring!) backstory behind the Clifton Corner name
- What are Twice Exceptional students?
“Education is a deficit model; it focuses on what is weak and what is wrong. I learned very early in my career that I was not going to make it and my kids were not going to make it if I didn’t find the places and the passions where they and I could shine. So I naturally gravitated toward a strengths-based model from the start.”
