Creating a Culture of Connection and Belonging
Happy YOUniversity has created a program designed to foster a sense of belonging and community in schools.
Science tells us that intentionally building positive relationships and connection in the classroom will create an atmosphere of safety and an optimal environment for learning. Students who feel a sense of belonging and connection in the classroom perform better academically, are more attentive to their teacher, and are more connected to their peers.
In just 10 minutes a day for fourteen days, you can begin to make changes in your classroom and school that will build lasting trust and positive results.
You can expect to:
Feel more connected in your personal and professional relationships
Create a sense of belonging and community in your classroom
Strengthen connections with your students
Become other-centered to boost your own happiness
Help your students deepen connections with each other
Increase student engagement, motivation, and learning
Reach beyond your classroom and be a Social-Emotional Leader in your school community
