Struggling to be heard: Chapter 9

“Anyone attempting to change public education faces and uphill battle just to get his or her message heard. The institution is big and culturally entrenched. Most educators are overburdened.”

What has led to the overburden?

step 1 shift your attention to the positive
Step 1: Shift your attention to the positive.

“If we constantly choose to focus on the negative things that occur in our classrooms, our schools, and our district, then we become more negative. Conversely, when we choose to put our attention on the hopeful, encouraging, positive developments that occur within our schools, we become more positive.”

“It is a helpful class. I enjoyed it. This year was a lot easier because of this class. When I first came to this class I didn’t like to do anything like Reading or Writing. But thanks to Mrs. Z and Mrs. G. it’s my favorite thing to do when I’m in school. This class is very helpful.” (9th grader)

I loved reading the student comments and am happy to see the students were able to understand their growth and how the Literacy Support class contributed to it. Thank you for all your efforts and positive energy this year. I believe both you and Lauren provided an environment where some of our teachers were able to overcome their anxiety working on something they never planned to have to do in a secondary school. For other teachers, it provided an opportunity to make a commitment to focus on what they understand is important; but may never have been able to devote the time because they were struggling with embedding it into their curriculum. Thank you so much!
