There are ways we can teach students emotional regulation, growth mindset, and empathy while helping them to connect with themselves, and the environment. Join Dr. Julie Leto and I as we have a dynamic conversation about using gardening to help students learn lessons that will be invaluable in school and throughout their life. As Dr. Julie points out, all students are "at-risk", so whether you work with elementary age children, middle or high school students, this episode on connecting gardening to the classroom is likely to inspire you in seeing growth through an entirely new lens. Dr, Julie has been a passionate advocate for children most of her life. She's helped families, communities and schools improve learning and motivation for 30 years as an educational psychologist, teacher and parent coach. An expert in cognitive load – how our brains handle quantities of input - an area more important than ever in our hyper-connected, always-on, electronic world, she sees that kids process information and need to be parented differently than we were. Dr. Julie learned that the greatest impact for students are the result of changes made by the adults around them.  To connect with Dr. Julie or learn more about the Tower Garden, visit: https://linktr.ee/drjulie(or to join her amazing group "Parent Warriors" directly go to  https://www.facebook.com/groups/parentwarriors/ )Enjoy the show!Let's change lives together.Join our Facebook community at https://www.facebook.com/groups/compassionateeducationresources/  for more resources.EMAIL support@compassionateeducators.com or VISIT https://www.compassionateeducators.com/ to learn more about working directly with Marie.Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/groups/compassionateeducationresources/)

In light of recent events, specifically events that relate to the global outcries of racial injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement, acknowledgement of white privilege, and more exposure to witnessing violence founded in racism, I have chosen to create an episode to help educators hold space for their students to reflect on and process their own experiences. This is not meant to be a therapy session in the classroom, but there are ways which we can create therapeutic and safe environments within the boundaries and context of school.I do urge you to listen to and absorb all of the incredibly rich content that is available and authored by members of the BIPOC communities, but if my teachings and style resonate with you, please listen to this episode, reflect, and process. I invite you to get comfortable in the discomfort of these conversations because they will ultimately transform us into the Compassionate Educators are students, our families, our communities, and our world need us to be.RESOURCESJoe Truss' 40+ Books for AntiRacist TeachersLindsey Floyd's Protest Orientation for TeachersLetitia Browne-James Racial Trauma In America Panel DiscussionLet's change lives together.Join our Facebook community at https://www.facebook.com/groups/compassionateeducationresources/  for more resources.EMAIL support@compassionateeducators.com or VISIT https://www.compassionateeducators.com/ to learn more about working directly with Marie and services she provides to educators and schools.Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/groups/compassionateeducationresources/)

For the first time in our lives, we can take time to reflect on what we truly want traditional education to look like and then make changes to make it happen.I invite you to explore with me, what would happen if students and staff well-being are prioritized? What if physical, emotional and mental health were at the forefront of every school's action plans? What if students natural tendency for curiosity, exploration and engagement were reignited because their basic needs and happiness mattered? What if school violence, anxiety and depression decreased because we showed them that they were valued and worthy of care.I'd love to hear what your dream is for education! Let's change lives together.Join our Facebook community at https://www.facebook.com/groups/compassionateeducationresources/  for more resources.Visit https://www.compassionateeducators.com/ to learn more about working directly with Marie and services she provides to educators and schools or email support@compassionateeducators.com Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/groups/compassionateeducationresources/)

It's important as Compassionate Educators to lean into the most fundamental aspects of compassion. Therefore, we are going to talk about Coronavirus today but in a way that you can use this experience as a life skill when working with students, or even with your own children. In this episode I discuss how to speak to students about health in a proactive and empowering manner. Since recording this episode, there are more and more schools temporarily closing the doors to their physical buildings, but this information is relevant during virtual connections, upon returning to school, and even with your own families.Rather than promoting fear propaganda, let's rise to the level that our children need. They need us to equip them with useful information and be a guard between them and the anxiety and fear-driven media. With that said, please have compassion for those who are currently living in fear or who are ill whether from this virus or another illness. We never know what another person is going through or has gone through, so no judgement needed. Let's be the light that shines hope and compassion in all situations.
