Small Groups are so beneficial

Sofia Velez
High School Student

Attending small groups every week has been such a benefit to my life. In our small group we have an opportunity to release stress and anything we are overwhelmed with by sharing it with everyone. When people are sharing in our group, I am able to relate with what they say and it makes me feel like I’m not the only one with these problems. I am so fortunate that I have an opportunity to have a space where I can receive advice on how to better understand others through communication. I would highly recommend small groups and think it will be very helpful to everyone who takes part in it.

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!

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

A First-Year Teacher’s Obstacles

As a first year teacher there are many obstacles that you do not realize you will face when it comes time to leading your own classroom.

Lunch Bunch success

The students you meet with in the “lunch bunch” are so excited to go to the program each week.

Cultivating a strong bond can help students in many ways

It is something tangible that I can work on each and every day of the school year, without needing to be within the context of bullying or harassment.

The Teacher Student Relationship is so important

One of the things that I found most interesting was learning about is how important the teacher-student relationship is.

Builds rapport and relationships from an empathetic perspective

The GTO approach has resulted in students understanding one another more effectively as well as teachers understanding their students and the motivations that drive their behavior to learn and behave most effectively.
