At the age of 10, I became a member of a club.
I was not seeking membership in this club. It didn't require any talent or specific skill. There were no age or gender requirements. There was no monetary fee.
Once there, I hadn't a clue what the ground rules were.
How should I behave?
Should I tell others I belong?
How long will my membership last?
Why was I selected to join this club?
The Grief Club.
Grieving children are courageous, having to deal with "big" feelings when they are not ready to do so.
Grieving children are full of wisdom, when given the opportunity to share their thoughts.
Grieving children are resilient, but only when they are helped to be so.
I am honored to introduce you to a fellow club member.
His dad died suddenly when he was 7 years old.
At the age of 13, now in 7th grade, Bennett has written his story for all to see.
This is what a young griever is able to do when spoken to with honesty. And is loved. And has his heart gently held.
Please, read Bennett’s story below. His mama and big sister are proud of him. I am too.
He is courageous. And wise. And resilient.
Let’s show Bennett some love in the comments!
(and how about that teacher’s comment💕)
My friends, I need your help! 🙏
I have a vision to bring the gifts of Yoga, Breath and Mindfulness into every pre and primary classroom in Australia.
It feels achievable and I'm pretty sure that in 10 years time, this will be the case but, right now, we need a collective voice and a communal intention. ⭐️
Youth mental health issues are on the rise; suicide amongst 17-24 year olds is the highest it's been in Australia to date; teachers are burning out and leaving the profession at alarming rates... We're at a crisis point and we can do something about it. 🧡
My NESA accredited workshop - A Calmer Classroom - gives teachers tools to EASILY and SIMPLY weave Yoga, Breath and Mindfulness into the classroom every day ✨
The results (in a nutshell): ✨ teachers feel less stressed ✨ students become more resilient as they gather tools to manage their moods, stress and anxiety.
Teachers need NO knowledge or experience in yoga.
Feedback from teachers about the training is 5⭐️ and their stories of change in the classrooms is Wow! 💥
My amazing colleagues and I are wearing red on Fridays to remind our province how much teachers care about BC children and their right to an equitable and properly funded education. Our kids and the future of this province and country deserve it!!! ❤️🍎❤️ #redforbced#teachers#solidarity#kidsdeserveit#redfored 🍎
Had an amazing day with the students and staff at Oakman Elementary School.
I was invited as a guest author and had the opportunity to share the message of wellness and writing.
Also honored that the principal bought copies of “Be Calm” for his whole staff. #selfcareforteachers
Thank you for inviting me to your school! 🙏🏽💕 If you want to purchase the books 🔗 is in the bio.

I am so excited to share this great news with you!!! Have you heard of Osmo? If not then stop what you are doing and check them out!
It is a system that you can purchase to work with your iPad or Fire Tablet. It turns it into an interactive educational tool for your students to practice letters, sounds, words, numbers, coding, and so much more!
I first heard of this company years ago from a sweet friend @sharingkindergarten and she told me about them and I knew I had to get them for my kids. We instantly fell in love with Osmo!
Thanks to my sweet friend @misstechqueen I have just become an ambassador for this amazing company! I cannot wait to share with you how we use these throughout our day in the classroom. So stay tunes for lots of Osmo fun this year!

🐢 For our first Researcher’s Workshop, my students had the options of presenting their information on a poster or a mini book.
🐢 These are the examples that I made to show them! Modeling is so important for student understanding. 🧠 🐢 I modeled each step of how to find books, how to use the table of contents to find certain information, how to use post its to make notes, how to transfer those notes onto their recording page, and then finally how to organize the info onto a poster or mini book.
🐢 Modeling all of this clearly the first time, will help them to continue the process on their own for future research topics!

🌟The Day the Chairs Quit!🌟 We walked into our classroom this morning to find out that our chairs have quit! The students had to write persuasive letters to get them back. Their writing was amazing! They were so on task and they loved it! Thanks to @happywithmissh and @missbthenqt for the idea!
