Ship's Log

Week of February 4, 2019


Stella, Denise, Miranda and I went to a training on Restorative Practices last week. It was a lot of information in a short amount of time and it kept coming back to relationships.
I wish you all could have gone with us.

  • Kids want/need to feel heard
  • Kids want teachers who smile and are happy (the same that adults want from bosses)
  • How do your students know you love your job?
  • Teach every child the way you would want your own child/grandchild taught
  • Be what you want to see
  • Kids need to leave your class feeling better than when they arrived

We will be happy to share all of our learning and resources with you over the next few weeks!
