Lunch Bunch success

Jill,

Just a quick note to let you know that the students you meet with in the “lunch bunch” are so excited to go to the program each week.  I see them passing on what they learn to their friends and that is key.  Also, the administrator and I are using a mini version of your 8 essential questions when we meet with students, thanks for sharing such a valuable tool.   Take care!

Managing Emotions to decrease suspensions

Persistence keeps the program going

Randy, a boy at School 2 has been struggling (basically failing most subjects) in school for several years. When I met him his teachers, counselors, parents and administration were frustrated and simply did not know how to support and motivate him academically. He was always forgetting things, not turning in work, failing tests and disorganized. Last year in lunch bunch we worked on self-advocacy. This email is a testament to his advocating for himself…he continuously went to the counselor’s office asking to bring back Gen Text because our work with him supports him academically, socially and emotionally! How awesome is this?????

Digital Footprint is so important

In order to be a highly effective teacher it is essential to conduct lessons that include students going online independently.

Thank you!!

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

I felt safe sharing

It has been great to get to know better the other people with whom I work. Timothy did a great job making it feel like a welcoming environment in which we could feel safe sharing.

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.
