B7 –The Educator is the Strategy
Presenters: David Traynor and Jennette MacKenzie (Nelson)
Description: When students struggle, whether it’s with learning, behaviour, or their overall mental health and well-being, the natural tendency for educators is to search for a solution to address the problem. While strategies can be helpful, ultimately what will make the most difference is the powerful, but intangible, relationship that the educator has with the student. This lively and interactive presentation will examine how educators can maximize both student well-being, as well as their own well-being, as outlined in the presenter’s new book: The Third Path: A Relationship-Based Approach to Student Achievement and Well-Being.
