The Positive Times positive education website published this article from the Berry Street Childhood Insitute’s Leonie Abbott:
‘When it comes to positive education, how often do you practice what you learn within your own context to fully feel and understand what you learn before you then teach strategies to your class?
Teachers are terrific consumers of learning. They are often hungry for strategies that will work for their students. I too, am a teacher with considerable experience in the classroom and in school leadership. In my knowledge quest, I notice that sometimes teachers sidestep their own personal learning in order to transfer new knowledge to their classroom because “my students need this.”’
