I'm OK, you're OK
ELP Lecture Series – April Lecture, 7–9pm
Presented by Lynn Rupe
Te Whāriki (2017, pg.20) reminds us that, “the wellbeing of each child is interdependent with the wellbeing of their kaiako, parents and whānau.” Bronfenbrenner believed that the quality of the interactions with children is very much reliant on the caregiver receiving support and recognition.
I’m ok, you’re ok is an opportunity to think about teachers’ wellbeing! How do we ensure that the teacher (caregiver) receives support and recognition in order for wonderful teaching practice to flourish? What does teacher wellbeing have to do with children’s wellbeing? And how can we ensure teachers are OK! Aroha mai, aroha atu.
