Fall Parent and Family Partnership Evening with Rosetta Lee

Rosetta Lee at Podium

Developing a Positive Sense of Self at Home and School

Wednesday, October 25, 2023
6:00–7:30 p.m. in the Theatre
Positive sense of self leads to greater academic achievement, resilience after setbacks, healthy risk taking, and more. There are many factors that play into a child’s individual and group identity development—both at school and at home. Nationally known educator Rosetta Lee will discuss factors at school, such as
  • a sense of belonging,
  • mirrors and windows into identity in the curriculum, and
  • affinity groups
as well as factors at home, such as
  • explicit conversations,
  • identity pride/protection, and
  • age-appropriate autonomy.

Learn how we can work together to nurture positive self-identity in our students, coach them to be positive influences on others' identities, and strengthen our school community.
