Guidance Lessons

I will be visiting with each homeroom class throughout the year to deliver guidance lessons on many different character development areas such as bullying awareness, personal safety, understanding our feelings, kindness, and others. These lessons range from 15-30 minutes long and are designed to help kids learn about the world they live in and how they can safely navigate through it all. I hope to provide skills and techniques for them to use to avoid future issues.  I'm excited about having the opportunity to get to know the students better through these classroom discussions.
 
This year, we are focusing on a different character trait each month and our monthly lesson will correspond to that trait.
