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!

10 + 8 =

I have learned so much!

Meeting in small groups a couple days a week has helped me learn new skills, qualities, etc. The main goal is to prepare not only me, but all students for the future.

You can not just do lesson on character education

You can not just do lesson on character education and bullying and expect students to be prepared to be 21st century dual citizens.

Finding Middle Ground

I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn.

Students Respond Positively

Students haver responded positively to the activities and assignments embedded in the program, leading to rich conversations.

There is a huge discrepancy between what students thing and what teachers think

While adults may believe they are doing enough, students do not think we are.
