It has been quite a growing process for charter schools in Arizona, and San Tan Charter School in particular. We have participated in that growth by sharing our commitment to helping teachers enjoy teaching and collaborating with their students and families; and encourage students to love learning, to be prepared to face challenges and develop critical thinking skills, along with building compassionate, strong, reciprocal relationships.
To that end, we have implemented the Love and Logic approach described as follows: The Love and Logic Institute has created a wonderful program for educators that is divided into 9 “skills”, or tools, to use for Classroom Management and to build relationships with their students. This program is used extensively throughout the country with great success. The 9 Essential Skills for the Love and Logic Classroom are:
This will allow all members of the San Tan team to teach from the same perspective and to support each other while guiding our students to be better prepared for life in all aspects. We also have arranged for individual observations and coaching of educators as they implement these tools and skills, thereby building confidence in their abilities to connect with their students in a compassionate way. We intend to continue offering personalized coaching going forward.
Recognizing that our parents also desire to be aware of and supportive of their child’s progress and school environment, we believe that offering parent workshops provides a bridge of learning, communication and support of the highly effective Love and Logic tools used at school, and how they can be integrated at home. We facilitate parenting workshops, in a variety of formats to specifically address issues and concerns raised by our school community.
