Safe spaces that encourage students to speak up, open their hearts, & leave their fears behind. They need to be able to share and feel safe!
Tell us about your idea
Safe spaces that build trust, and students feel like they belong! We need to give them the chance to understand what they're feeling and be able to feel good again. These are tough times and we need to change the system of "having yourself together" all the time. I want to create more safe spaces that encourage them to open their hearts and speak truth without having any type of fear about what others will say. They need to feel they that we're here for them and create that sense of "safe space" (which is what a community is supposed to be) again.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I am a 3rd grade teacher. I've always created a safe space inside my classroom for them to share, speak up, and leave their fears behind. We talk about topics like: empathy, vulnerability, equal rights, self love, and many more. Now, I want to create more spaces, to be able to help more students have this opportunity. That's why I've created some virtual groups to talk about these topics!
