What Can Adults Do to Highlight Student Strengths?0
I love Education Week and am always honored when I get the chance to weigh in on Larry Ferlazzo’s questions. In this post, he asks: What can teachers do to help highlight student assets and not their deficits?
There are several informative and engaging responses. Scroll down to the end of the post to read mine 🙂 Enjoy!

January Coffee with the Counselor0
This school year, I’m offering monthly Coffee with the Counselor events at my school on the first (or second!) Friday of each month. Coffee with the Counselor mornings will provide an informal opportunity for parents & caregivers to discuss issues related to child and adolescent development, mental health, social & emotional development, and general well-being. I’ll share interesting resources and recommend readings on selected topics, to inspire discussion within the group.
