I Love Public Schools I Love Public Schools

Story By:

Amber Folkers

We are a team who works together to provide students with a safe and positive learning environment.

I believe our school is one of the best schools around. We are positive and caring. Every morning the students get 3 positive contacts before going into the classroom and we believe that with those positive contacts the students go into learning feeling loved, and safe no matter how difficult of a morning they could have had at home.

I was working with a student who you could tell has a lot of anxiety and, because of that, was unable to sit and pay attention to what lessons the teacher was presenting. So I moved behind him and softly put my hand on his shoulder so he knew someone was there and he was safe and cared for. This student became engaged in the lesson and was able to complete work successfully and was starting to show confidence in his work.
