Keeping the Peace

More than teaching kids how to read and write, being a teacher is about calming students when they’ve had a rough recess, celebrating when they learn to tie their shoe laces, absorbing their struggles, channelling their joys and at THS, to help them identify and manage their feelings. Hefting this emotional labour is hard work and often invisible. This week, fifth grade teacher Kimber Claeborn shares her techniques on how to focus more fully on learning and life by tuning in to one’s inner self.
