Taking care of the whole teacher
Wow! Some great ideas to reflecting on what we can control, community building exercises, and giving us a place for ample resources! As an elementary we are going from hybrid/cohort model to being at the school full time and teachers have been wanting community building activities. This episode had SIMPLE and meaningful examples for both staff and students. And yes, I have been more intentional about taking care of myself but still need those reminders to stay on track. THANK YOU!
This podcast is outstanding. The topics and guests provide quick hits of thought-provoking ideas and discussion surrounding SEL to inspire and empower staff and students.
I love that the host John Norlin takes notes to document what resonates with him and then shares that with the guest and audience. Norlin also provides information for the listener to go deeper after the podcast.
Truly exceptional, top quality content.
I was a student of Ryan Healy and I recommend this podcast to all ages and groups. It has influenced my views and options on many different things. Thank you for taking the time to make people’s days!
