I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy! I understand that this is a challenging time for everyone, and I hope that we are all finding ways to bring joy and comfort to our lives.
The Great Kindness Challenge is the week of January 25 - January 29, and I would love for all of our students to participate! More information is below!
I have been continuing my virtual lessons using the Second Step program. In our K - 5 classes, we have been learning about assertiveness, empathy, and reviewing our listening skills. We also have been listening to stories about gratitude and big emotions. In grades 6 - 8, we worked on bullying awareness, stress management, and self-care. We have started learning about how our decision-making can be impacted by emotions, and what we can do to to recognize the signals our bodies give us when we begin to feel overwhelmed.
Please remember that I am here to support the students however I can. I am available to meet via zoom if a student needs help or just wants to talk! Don't hesitate to reach out if I can support you in any way. Email is the best way to reach me while we are fully remote.
Please continue to read below for some information that I hope you will find useful! My website is updated regularly as well. You will find my virtual office there, which is updated regularly with links to resources and lessons.
