|HSE is one of the few districts |
in the state that has a
Mental Health Coordinator.
Even though I spend my time thinking about mental health, the goal for everyone in the district is help students learn to the best of their abilities. I have no doubt that mental health has a major impact on a student’s ability to learn and on a teacher’s ability to teach students. As are result, every adult employed by HSE Schools can influence the lives of the children we teach.
The children in our classrooms do face many challenges. They live in a busy, fast-paced world and can feel overwhelmed and overlooked. Fortunately, each and every one of us can make a positive impact on the lives of students in our schools. If you want to see what this might look like, click on the link below and take a few minutes to watch “Every Opportunity.”
- Greet your students by name each morning.
- Get to know your students personally.
- When behavior needs correcting, do it quietly, not in front of the whole class.
- Catch students making the right choice and praise them for it!
- Listen to what your students have to say, and find time for individual conversations.
