I am deeply motivated by the concept of unconditional positive regard in education.
To me, unconditional positive regard is the the foundation for creating the schools we need for every student. I spoke about what unconditional positive regard means to me in an EdTalk at the MTA Summer Institute a few years ago.
I believe we can create a safe and caring school environment through unconditional positive regard, recognizing the dynamic and complex lives of our students. Systems change is just as important as our individual actions, and only through systems change can we truly create equity for all.
