Gentle Teaching

The Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

This summer we have been very busy getting ready for the new school year! Trainings have been underway to ensure that the staff has the skills to work with the children and adults we serve.

By doing so, we have been sharing ‘Gentle Teaching’, with our staff for the last eight years. This life-changing course was founded by the late Dr. John McGee based on the Golden Rule. And as we all know, there is a lot of power in that statement.

Gentle Teaching focuses on making people feel safe and loved. Once someone feels that, then they can start to be more engaged in their own lives and environment. Our staff has learned that each of them possess the skills to make this happen and it’s something we strive for daily. In fact, not only have they learned to do this with the students and Individuals we serve, but also with their co-workers, children, parents, significant others and people in the community.

This has impacted us in so many ways and the results are amazing! I’m so grateful for the time I spent with Dr. McGee and that I am able to carry on his legacy a little further.
