I love this!
“Our days are really jam-packed and I think it’s really easy to want to cut out the social-emotional piece. However, I think if we really want our students to be excited about learning, to be critical thinkers, to be successful students, THAT social-emotional piece is an absolute necessity. And I truly believe that the morning meeting establishes that safe and comfortable tone that allows students to open their mind and learn throughout the rest of the day.”
