Passion. Commitment. Dedication

Education is one field which is ever growing and ever changing. To keep up the pace, teachers must be life-long learners to be equipped to teach new set of children. Shiv Nadar School firmly believes in a structured professional development for our mentors as it is a key component in creating an effective/joyful learning environment for young children and to enhance or better ones teaching.

With this thought, our teachers Ms. Priya Bansal (Primary Teacher), Ms. Monica Rishi (SEN Pre-Primary) and Ms. Tatiana Arteyeva (Counsellor) conducted a session on Thursday, 23rd May, 2019 for the Primary Teachers. The session was on Social, Emotional, and Ethical (SEE) Learning is an innovative education program developed by Emory University and supported by Dalai Lama.

SEE Learning™ provides educators with the tools they need to foster the development of emotional, social, and ethical intelligence for students and themselves.

SEE Learning™ represents the state of the art in education by enhancing SEL programming with key additional components, including:

  • Attention Training
  • Compassion and Ethical Discernment
  • Systems Thinking
  • Resilience and Trauma-Informed practice

This program provides educators with a developmentally-staged curriculum consisting of easy-to-implement lessons, the conceptual framework used to design the curriculum, and resources for educator preparation and development. SEE Learning empowers students to engage ethically as part of a global community and provides educators with the tools to support student well-being.

The teachers were introduced to the SEE Learning curriculum, and experienced the impact of its activities. They got inspired to implement them in class for the better being of the students, teachers and people around. The topics discussed:

  1. Exploring Kindness - We all want kindness shown to us, because we all want happiness and well-being, and none of us wants sadness, troubles, and difficulties.
  2. Class Agreements - We all need it and benefit from it by creating a mutually agreed-on list of class agreements that will support a safe, productive learning environment.
  3. Practicing Kindness - What does it look like when we…?
  4. Resourcing - Personal resources are internal, external or imagined things that serve to bring about sensations of greater well-being in the body. They are unique to each person.
  5. Creating a Treasure Chest - Thinking about a personal resource tends to bring sensations of well-being to the body. It is good to have more than one resource, because a particular resource might not work all the time.
  6. The Resilient Zone - The resilient zone refers to when our mind and body are in a state of well-being. When we are in our resilient zone we can handle the stresses that happen during the day and react with the best part of ourselves. Stress can bump us out of our resilient zone into our high or low zone.
