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!!

SEL is part of our everyday curriculum

Each activity is truly a joyous learning experience for teachers and students alike.

I Learned So Much

As an educator, I am more aware of how my classroom should be (culture and climate) and it’s so important.

Energetic and Experiential

Jill Brown provides an energetic and experiential training that captures the essence of the Generation Text On-Line curricula. Educators are sure to walk away with valuable insight and understanding of this increasingly relevant 15 week program. In a rapidly changing, pluralistic society, the needs of the 21st century learner are constantly evolving and Generation Text sets out to meet that need.

Made me think

I found the sessions useful...I did....it really has made me think about how I am interacting with the staff and how I can connect more with each one. It really is powerful stuff. Truly. I find myself using some of these strategies even in person
