It is great to learn more as a Teacher about Self and your role as a Teacher…it opens you up to learn more and grow as a Teacher.

TEACHERS ARE ROLE MODELS TO OUR CHILDREN...

It is through their guidance and dedication that young people are given the power and tools of Education.

THE STRUGGLE IS REAL

Let’s be honest - teachers are not only having to navigate a challenging environment during COVID19...

It is an ongoing classroom for them dealing with youth growing up in high risk areas, influenced by unconscious behaviour such as crime and gangsterism, drug and alcohol abuse, unemployment and poverty. It is a big ask and a big task for our Teachers. 

Many find the stresses of life inside/outside school impacting their ability to be effective and fully engaged in the classroom.Our Educators are at risk to disengage from the partnership with learners and each other, and disconnecting from their purpose. The result is they can no longer hold the integrity of the educational framework. Performance is impacted. The struggle is real and highlights the importance of championing the wellbeing of our Hero's.

Investing in our teachers is one of the best decisions we can make for our society as a whole and the generations to come.

I like the The Responsible Individual program - it is relevant - as it is topics that we can learn from in our daily lives - both in our School and Personal lives.

As the Life Orientation Teacher I have to ensure the Students stay motivated, that their wellbeing is alright, to ensure they are responsible. The Responsible Individual helps both Students and Teachers with their approach. Because not many Teachers are equipped with different approaches - some topics are very sensitive. It helps the Teacher navigate their way in these topics - on their approach.

SmilingOne coming to our school was a good idea. SmilingOne has the opportunity to speak and approach the Students in the very context where they need help and assistance. The Students go to school for most of their Teenage years which makes it the perfect place to help them analyse things that makes up their school lives and take home what they can also use in their personal lives.

The Responsible Individual program assists Students with their value system. It is great to have help available - however it is a two way street. They cannot sit back and reach their goals, they have to be active.

The program was insightful and educational. The highlight for me was coming together as a group, sharing whatever we went through during the day. It may have been a very difficult day - concerning the Learners or the classroom situation. At the end we learn a lot from one another because we all have different ways on how we handle things concerning the classroom situations. We could learn from one another to tackle situations in a much better way.

The Change Agent has a way of summing up the session in a nutshell - when you go home, and if you face a situation during the day than there was always a remedy you can take out of that nutshell, and use that information to handle a situation with a Learner better, in a much easier way.

I have come to understand Learners much better. The Learners come from different backgrounds, different situations at home - and we as Educators do not always know. And when there is a problem in class, we want to tackle that problem head on - without understanding what was the situation at home, what did that Learner go through. Our group started to understand that if there is a Learner difficulty in class - maybe the Learner could have been going through hell at home. The Learner explodes and I as an Educator exploded in my earlier years.

The Program has opened the understanding of Ethics and Personalities for me. The mere fact that you are getting to know yourself and how to treat another person. Such engagements takes time - which in current times is not met by most but is possible. The Responsible Individual can definitely reduce dropouts. The program can be build-in as a period on the school roster. Then gather once a month where we can get feedback and hear each other out. It can even be a bonding session in school hall.
Mr Isaacs
RAVENSMEAD HIGH SCHOOL
I honestly do not have the words to explain how much the program has done for me. It changed my whole mindset for the better. I have more understanding about my issues and the issues that others face. I understand people better in regards to that we are different from each other, our values and experiences are different....
