Fostering Inclusion


Echo Horizon School in Culver City is a gem of an elementary school that communicates community from the moment one arrives on campus. The traditional one-building schoolhouse provides a haven from the busy-ness outside and facilitates warm relationships amongst faculty, staff and students. Our morning workshop provided an overview of the six elements of relational teaching, focused specifically on the theme of connection. We spent time discussing the importance of getting the names down (pronunciation), fostering a classroom of inclusion and belonging, and identifying ways to teach intention and mindfulness.
