Keynote – Virtual (Revelstoke, BC)

Building Healthy Thriving Learning Communities

This seminar will support participants in understanding how we can begin
to transform our classroom and school cultures into communities, not
cliques.
Communities are where you can be yourself in a culture of togetherness.
Cliques are where you have to be like everyone else in order to be
together.
Thriving classrooms are classrooms that feel emotionally safe; therefore,
thriving classrooms are where inclusivity in its purest form can begin to
exist, not simply on paper but in lived experience. Inclusivity happens
when diverse individuals have a space in which they can genuinely be
themselves and receive the support they need to be able to do so. This
can only happen in the presence of emotional safety as people need to
feel safe enough to actually be who they are. They need to feel safe
enough to get the support they need without being teased, safe enough
to excel without being made fun of. Children need to feel safe enough to
be different from one another without being ostracized.
The development of such thriving learning communities is not accidental.
As educators, we can take conscious steps to build and create thriving
classrooms and schools.
