AS TEACHERS AND SCHOOL LEADERS YOU'RE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR STUDENTS IN A WAY OTHERS MAY NOT.
Facilitating the essential tools needed through thought-provoking conversations leads to positive change in instructional leadership to ensure your school or district initiatives are achieved with adherence and support of balanced leadership within your organization. Some initiatives are implemented districtwide while others are based solely on the needs of each school. We offer guidance to help you continue making a positive difference in the lives of our youth, especially during these difficult times. We will work together to develop a program for sustainability where obstacles are seen as opportunities for change and the cultivation of long-term growth. Finding possibilities and adopting a mindset with creative thinking can open the door to invaluable opportunities and lessons learned by our youth.
Based on current research, finding supportive and innovative ways to educate your students on how to cope with this disruption and change will have a lifelong impact on them. Although many schools have recently returned to full-time instruction, there are no guarantees for the future. As we have seen, a worldwide pandemic does not follow a certain set of rules. Equipping your students with the necessary skills to handle potential setbacks is key to their future success. You could be missing out on great opportunities to embrace the unknown and really make a difference before this time passes.

"We must be guardians of spaces that allow students to breathe, be curious, and to explore the world and be who they are without suffocation. They deserve one place where they can rumble with vulnerability and their hearts can exhale. And what I know from the research is that we should never underestimate the benefit to a child of having a place to belong even one where they can take off their armor. It can and often does change the trajectory of their life."
