Extremely Rewarding

Working with Jill Brown and her colleagues from Generation Text Online has been extremely rewarding for the members of our leadership team.  The strategies and lessons endorsed by GTO are relevant, thought provoking, and engaging.  The training offers participants an opportunity to connect with colleagues, experience personal growth, and place our organization on a path to success.”

A new way to run a meeting

It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well.

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.

I have 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.

Mentors leave lasting impressions on students’ lives!!

Jill, I agree that mentors leave lasting impressions on students’ lives!! Your company does great work!

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.

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?????
