The school year is coming to an end and at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School our teachers use constant innovative lessons and units that are in line with our strategic plan and vision, never forgetting the whole child and importance of nurturing relationships. Creating a culture of trust and innovation is at the heart of it all.
Michayla Bell, Kindergarten teacher, shares her experience with conferencing. What stood out for me were her following words: “Regardless of the purpose of the conference, in order to be effective, trust is key, so I need to build a strong relationship with all of my students and be aware of their strengths and weaknesses. That sets me up to make sure my time with each child positively impacts their learning.”
Trevor Bryan and Rich Czyz from Four O’Clock Faculty came up with another great visual sharing ways to build a culture of empathy, either in the classroom or in school as a general. It is all about relationships!
