claudia hinton and amy roth lead the Social/Emotional staff meeting at GCE this morning.  The meeting began with a Democracy Now video featuring Dr. Gabor Maté author of Hold On To Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers and Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It. Dr. Maté says, “schools have to become not just places of pedagogy, but places of emotional connection. The teachers should be in the emotional connection game before they attempt to be in the pedagogy game.”  To learn more about Dr. Maté’s research and findings please click on the link.
