Social and emotional learning is the core of essential learning. Without these necessary core social skills, students are not prepared to continue their learning in the classroom.
The implementation of the CARE program in the school highlighted in the video below has changed the culture and climate of this school. The principal has observed that less time is spent mediated conflicts and practicing social and emotional learning has allowed the students to collaborate and exist together with fewer conflicts.
Like the principal in this video, I greet my students every morning to wish them a “Good morning”, give high fives and wish my students and parents a great day. I want my students to know that we want them here on our campus and I am hoping that being visible allows the parents to feel as if their student is safe with us.
