We all know that teaching shapes future generations and a teacher’s influence goes beyond the classroom.
Join us for an Open House and Dialogue as we delve into what makes a teacher’s influence life changing. Along with Mindfulness in Education Master Teacher Lawrence Carroll and TGI President Michael Pergola, we will explore how mindfulness practices can significantly increase “the sweet spot for learning”. You will learn approaches to strengthen classroom relationships, how to increase student safety and encourage academic risks that make the classroom experience relevant to your students’ future.
We will also give you Information on TGI programs that will provide you with the tools you need to implement these changes into your life. Our Learning & Thinking Master’s Degree Program specially tailored for Connecticut teachers seeking a Masters or sixth year degree. Our new certificate in Social Harmony adds 12 credits focused on building emotional intelligence, and the relationship skills that reduce or eliminate bullying issues in the school community.
The RAND Corporation report that “teachers impact student’s achievement two to three times more than any other aspect of schooling” (2014). Dr. Gazzaniga, University of California Psychology Professor, write that “No ability or skill will unfold unless it is given the appropriate environment.”
