There is a lot going on in our school system today to help children feel good about themselves, and I'd like to give credit to all of the people who have been helping to make that happen. There are anti-bullying campaigns, paying it forward initiatives, classroom VIPs, Student of the Month, Character Traits and more. Our school boards are obviously recognizing there is a need for people to feel valued and that children's self-worth affects their school performance, social skills and beyond.
With all of this happening, why are the depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, fighting, bullying, murder and suicide rates still so high?
I believe that there are still some key factors missing from the school systems' good intentions and initiatives; and because so I'm inviting parents, teachers, social workers and mental health experts out to help me put together programs that will be beneficial and on-going for all ages.
Our initial information night is next week (Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at 7pm) in St. Catharines. I will be sharing the programs I have already begun creating, however everyone will benefit from collaboration, as I am only one person, and it takes all types of people to serve all types of people. I have had experience with teaching all age levels, but there is so much people can contribute. I want to make sure that these lessons are enjoyable, long-lasting and positively impactful for all age levels.
So, join me on Wednesday and share your ideas. Together, we can change the world. Thank you.
Here are the details for the event.
