How do you think your work on wellbeing has impacted your students?
I think that being intentional about wellbeing creates space for children to feel relaxed enough to be themselves. When they are relaxed, they can show those qualities such as empathy. When they feel relaxed and expressing themselves, they become more confident. And they laugh more.
This question gets into good discussions around “What is Learning?” and “What is engagement?”. Engagement is supposed to be fun! When students are relaxed, they naturally enjoy the learning process. This inevitably improves learning outcomes.
