Persistence keeps the program going

Peter, I wanted to share this email I received from one of your counselors.  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?????

To whom it may concern,

Randy is a sixth grade student who participated in Generation Text Online Lunch Bunch Program in 2015/2016 school year. He made such a connection with the program and Jill Brown that starting the beginning of the 2016/2017 year he would come to my office several times asking,  “When  will GenText start at school, I really liked it.”  His persistence was instrumentally in bringing the program back to our school!!

Getting students to think about actions

Guiding students through group conversations about the Eight Essential Questions really seems to be an excellent way of handling any type of bullying situations going on in your class.

An absolute joy!

It was so inspiring to watch you all doing what you are passionate about. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

A teacher has many things that they must teach a child.

The content, character, and being a duel citizen in the 21st century are three things that are assigned to teachers.

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.”

Positive

I appreciate Sam's perspective and positive feedback that he shares with our group.

It is important to learn new strategies

I found this course to be very insightful and interesting on many different levels. First off, being a teacher I think it is always important to reflect and learn new teaching strategies.
