Telling Our Stories- Building Student Trust

Last week we had the opportunity to present to a group of excited and motivated professionals at the Chicopee Public Schools. It was a great day with lots of enthusiasm about how the district will begin to implement our Acting with Purpose curriculum!

In discussing mindfulness and how to create connections in our classrooms, I mentioned a great article I had read called, "Build Students Trust by Sharing Stories on the First Day" by Sean Arthur. I loved her ideas for talking and connecting to High School students, but the idea of truly sharing about yourself as a way to connect early on in the year was inspiring to me. I wanted to share the article here.

What do you think?
