She leads professional development around best practices for working with American Indian students, using her indigenous lens to translate cultural teachings into practical classroom strategies. Ida has developed a positive behavior reinforcement model using the Seven Grandfather teachings. Thank you, Ida, for your work with MPS students and our community!
