My students are in kindergarten through fifth grade with mild to severe disabilities, including Autism, down syndrome, learning disabilities, and communication disorders.
"The best way to interrupt the cycle of poverty is to support children's physical, socio-emotional, and educational needs." Cheryl Suliteanu.
Help my students to successfully participate and enjoy school! Our elementary school is in a high poverty area and many students come to school hungry. Not all of my students are able to participate fully in their general education without extra support. These materials will help my students learn how to be successful, independent, and happy in life.
Social Emotional Learning is vital to teaching our students to learn and to lead successful happy lives. I would love to lead a book study on emotional wellness at my school with the Conscious Discipline materials. This program helps teachers to teach their students self-regulation strategies. Students these days do not know how to calm their bodies. These resources will help equip us in helping our students be the best they can be and increase their academic learning capacities. Thank you so much for the consideration in partnering with my school and classroom in order to help us learn and grow. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. I will use the New Conscious Discipline book to teach myself and colleagues how to implement social-emotional learning in our classrooms. I will use the online E-course: Building Resilient Schools & Homes with Dr. Becky Bailey 10 session videos weekly with my colleagues to build up our classroom and school environments.
