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!
