I Find Myself Truly Engaged

After taking this course, I find myself truly engaged in the two lessons describing the eight essential questions and “Mean V. Nice.” I have already taken the necessary steps to start a unit in teaching both lessons and making them a bi-monthly routine for the coming year. I especially like the idea of not just threatening students with “dos undefined don’ts” but giving them the tools they need to self access and therefore equipping them to deal with situations that may come up. I have always felt the term “bullying” has often been misused and abused. The idea of teaching students to realize that there is a step that comes before bullying in the “Mean V. Nice” lessons will really help defuse future problems. My objective will be to teach the important of prevention above all else with these lessons in mind for when intervention is needed. I hope to create a professional unit for our schools professional learning time where I will hopefully be able to turn key a lot of the information and strategies I have come away from this course.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

I found the Adverse Childhood Experience Study most interesting

The information from Dr. Nadine Burke on Adverse Childhood Experience Study was most interesting and valuable for that matter. Understanding the science behind the development or lack thereof, for some students helped to build tolerance and empathy as a pedagogue, which can be easily forgotten as the year progresses and frustration begins to fester with “uncooperative” students.

I look forward to my mentoring sessions!

During the time that I have been working with Generation Text Online Mentor Program I have made wonderful friends, learned a lot about myself, and gained a sense of pride and responsibility in my dealings with my peers.

The lessons with videos were the most valuable

The lessons with videos were the most valuable and I actually shared them with a coworker who teaches internet safety to the high school students.
