Uncomfortable Truths Educator Workshop
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 | 5:30 p.m. | Zoom
“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or dehumanized.” -Haim Ginott
How do we show up for our students? What can we offer? How do we do good and not harm? To answer these questions, we first need to explore our 24 character strengths and our social and emotional competency to face uncomfortable truths about ourselves and our world. This will help us create safe learning environments for both ourselves and our students. Click Here to register.
