I felt safe sharing

It has been great to get to know better the other people with whom I work. Timothy did a great job making it feel like a welcoming environment in which we could feel safe sharing.

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!

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.

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!

I found the Adverse Childhood Experience Study most interesting

The information from Dr. Nadine Burke on Adverse Childhood Experience Study was most interesting and valuable for that matter. Understanding the science behind the development or lack thereof, for some students helped to build tolerance and empathy as a pedagogue, which can be easily forgotten as the year progresses and frustration begins to fester with “uncooperative” students.

You can not just do lesson on character education

You can not just do lesson on character education and bullying and expect students to be prepared to be 21st century dual citizens.

An absolute joy!

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

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?????
