Stagg IR Room connects with students through asking What's Your Story?
In the Stagg High School Intervention Room, there's a bulletin board that asks, What's Your Story? that Tricia McNichols-Brnicky, Tara Syka and Michael Grice use to assist in building relationships with students. This is truly an amazing extension of the message we began the school year with and that we continue to develop during second semester.
This story of compassionate educators taking time to listen to students' stories brought a tear to my eye. When asked about the bulletin board, Tricia explained:
There is power in asking What's Your Story? and in listening as students share their more vulnerable moments. I am incredibly proud of our educators who are making these connections. And, I hope you will be willing to share your What's Your Story? stories, too.
