I Learned So Much

I learned so much from taking this class. The information I found most interesting and the most valuable was about Adverse Child Experiences (ACEs) because I was in shock. Negative events and stressors has a great impact on a child and we often think “Oh, they won’t remember” or “they’re too young to understand”. Honestly, I remember things that happened in my life since I was three years old and when I tell my mom the stories, she’s in shock. Those life events definitely molded me into the person I am today but I had some rough patches growing up because of those events. As an educator, I am more aware of how my classroom should be (culture and climate) and it’s so important. Also I learned more about bullying as well as the internet and from the eight essential questions, I think the most important is the one where it says we can’t control what others say but we can control what we say.

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!

This has reminded us to slow down and take time for conversation with each other/to build relationships instead of just "work" all the time
