Teaching to the whole child

A bit about this blogger...

Principal Peter DeWitt is an elementary school principal in New York. He writes about students' social and emotional health. His blogs, website, and books give information on how educators have this responsibility to students and how we can find what he calls "common ground" with these issues in school. He can be found at

"Leadership is hard, but it is so worth the work. Whether students, teachers or administrators, leaders can make positive changes in schools even during the most difficult educational time we have seen. There is no better time for people to find their inner leader. We are surrounded by a plethora of issues that need our attention. They need not be ignored. "

The Whole Child Approach

"Each child, in each school, in each of our communities deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. That's what a whole child approach to learning, teaching, and community engagement really is."
