I have learned so much!

I’m a senior attending Brooklyn Studio Secondary school, and I’ve been working with Ms. Brown for several weeks. I could already tell you I’ve 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. I am graduating this year and I have a whole new chapter of my life waiting. Ms. Brown has aided me in my communication, relationship, interaction, and problem-solving skills for college and upcoming jobs.

Learning how to engage and approach scenarios in the real world will prevent you from freezing up, getting anxiety, etc. For example, Ms. Brown has stressed how important your attitude is to yourself and others around you. When speaking to family, friends, professors, and bosses, it is important for you to keep eye contact, have appropriate body language, and reactions. Asking questions and adding comments while someone is talking shows interest and empathy. This helps build strong relationships. It is important for everyone to keep good relationships and connections. This has benefited me in my daily life, school specifically. Since school has been online this year, I have learned how to open up and associate with classmates that I don’t know or haven’t spoken too in a year. New friendships form and I am able to connect to people that are going through the same situation.

In addition, Ms. Brown and my teachers have made me become a leader in a way. I lead my own group in class and gain comfort/trust from other students. In these small groups we mostly target mental wellness and the art of listening. Each student reveals what makes them happy and sad. Coming up with solutions to certain conflicts. I have incorporated qualities like integrity, communication, gratitude, and empathy. I can thank Ms. Brown and Generation text for this.]

A school district with SEL success

Our students have been exposed to the opportunity to discover differing perspectives others may have and the rationale behind them.

Relationships and connections are so important!

These reminders about connections/relationships are so important. It can feel difficult to fit it all in, but without relationships and connection, the rest of the work is SO MUCH HARDER!

Positive

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

SEL is part of our everyday curriculum

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