At Shorecrest, we care very much about the safety of our students. This includes not only physical safety, but emotional and psychological safety, especially when it comes to allowing students to show up as their “full selves.” I also believe this should be a privilege afforded to staff and faculty. One of the ways that I am reminded of who I am is by reaching out to build community - whether it be with service partners, parents or other educators.
"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
A recent report last month titled Turning The Tide from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and the Making Caring Common (MCC) project highlighted the notion that students and college admissions offices should be less concerned with a long list of accomplishments and more with students demonstrating passion, particularly around civic engagement, including community service and service-learning.
