Class Experience

DISCLAIMER: I am not a therapist and I don't have a degree in psychology, However, I have spent over 15 years working with teens and young girls in ministry and also teaching classes for young girls and teens at summer camp on finding your self worth and qualities of a good friend. I enjoy working with this age group and helping girls realize their value and potential. Although I have worked with teens through youth ministry at church, this class will take a secular approach to the character trait topics in class, and discussion will be moderated by me.

The following are a list of possible items students might need. Each week, I will post in the classroom what the learner will need for the week. Kahoot Paper/journal dry erase board & markers crayons or markers
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This course is designed to offer young girls and early "tweens" a safe place to be themselves and build community. Discussions will be student led, but I will serve as a facilitator to ensure our conversations remain on track and appropriate. As an educator in the school system, I see a HIGH need for students, especially girls, to find a place where they can build relationships and talk with girls who may be experiencing similar situations. Navigating and escaping the mean girl mentality is hard, but finding others who understand and a sisterhood to grow with will hopefully make these difficult years easier to navigate. We will discuss weekly how we can exude these character qualities and face each day with GRIT and GRACE.
