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!

Thank you!!

Thank you, Jill. We appreciate the progress that has been made with our School 2 students.

A new way to run a meeting

It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well.

Made me think

I found the sessions useful...I did....it really has made me think about how I am interacting with the staff and how I can connect more with each one. It really is powerful stuff. Truly. I find myself using some of these strategies even in person

A school district with SEL success

Our students have been exposed to the opportunity to discover differing perspectives others may have and the rationale behind them.

Relationships and connections are so important!

These reminders about connections/relationships are so important. It can feel difficult to fit it all in, but without relationships and connection, the rest of the work is SO MUCH HARDER!
