    Using our Powers for Good in Bullying Prevention

    Using our Powers for Good in Bullying Prevention

    One important role of educators is to help young people navigate where they fit in and how to use their voice. Identifying who you are while trying to secure a sense of belonging and personal power makes adolescence extremely complicated especially when youth are mistreated by their peers at the same time. Guest Angie Rooker explains how her new fantasy book for middle school students can open up dialogues that help young people and adults use their power for the most good and stop forms of mistreatment such as exclusion, put-downs and other forms of bullying.

    Sparking children’s hearts & minds with Whole Child Education

    Sparking children’s hearts & minds with Whole Child Education

    How do we reach a student’s heads, hands and hearts so they are caring, curious, and excited to learn? All learning emanates from the heart. Since education does not operate in vacuum schools cannot educate the whole child alone. Schools function best when we authentically engage the family and the community through whole child education.  Guest Jonathan Raymond explains how to put children at the center and fresh approaches to meet the needs of each child.

    What’s missing in your leadership style?

    We all have a foundation of leadership and a type of leadership approach. Are you more of a square or a triangle? How can you modify your approach to strengthen your connection to staff or students to improve learning and the school in which you work? You can leverage what you do naturally to get better at things that are not so natural. Guest Mark Stevens explains what you’re missing in your leadership style and how you can get it.

    Manage Students without Meanness

    Manage Students without Meanness

    It’s a misconception that if you want classroom discipline with clear boundaries then you have to be mean-spirited. In fact, old ideas of intimidation and anger are no longer effective. Students have changed and educators must change and grow as well. Guest Doug Campbell shares approaches to discipline and classroom management that anyone can use to be a better educator and perhaps an even better parent.

Thank you Mr.John

Mr.John taught me a lot of ways to stop conflict happening in front of me and made me look at stuff in a way I’ve never thought of looking in that perspective. The program was very inspiring and will help me be a better person. -The Asian Kid with Long hair
