Where your attention goes your destiny will follow. “Shaping the minds of students” is not a metaphorical mantra, it is a literal one. For some, learning will nurture attachments to bravery, resiliency and joy. For others, it will be anxiety, shame, isolation or self-doubt. Teachers will leave inspired and hopeful with a new perspective and the tools they need to immediately implement effective daily strategies. Rewire neural connections for healthier happier students and teachers.
