Teacher Spotlight: Libby Brubaker
November 16, 2018
Social and Emotional Wellness
The routine in her class is "Mindset Mondays" where she integrates a social emotional learning curriculum. This week the class discussed FRUSTRATION. Students read a story about a student who became frustrated and handled it poorly. Students each shared some of their own experiences with frustration and together they brainstormed positive strategies.
Mrs. Brubaker and her students reflected on themselves as learners, practiced strategies, and developed strategies together. They also watched a video of other students sharing advice and then they created their own audio recordings.
Mrs. Brubaker thanks students for sharing their experiences, for being brave, courageous, and for helping each other learn.
Thank you, Mrs. Brubaker, for teaching our kids these important outcomes!
