Classroom Strategies to Create Kind and Caring Schools

with Emmanuel M. Rentoy


DURATION 2 hours
COURSE TYPE Online Blended Learning
CATEGORY Webinars/Seminars

Don’t just reject bullying, “replace” it with kindness and a caring culture that you can successfully create in your classroom and in your school if you follow strategies and systems from highly successful schools in the world. Most of these strategies do not cost a single centavo. You only need teachers who understand clearly that their job is not just to teach a subject. They have a sense of mission and know full well that teaching is not just hard work; it's heart work!

This course is designed to equip teachers with concrete strategies that they can use to be able to make the classroom a safe and welcoming place for the students. More than just rejecting bullying, teachers can replace it by creating a culture of kindness and caring that can have a lasting positive effect on the students, and even on their families.
