Whatever you do, don’t throw out all your garbage. That’s the advice from Shavon Frazier, a kindergarten teacher at PS 41 and panelist at the Robertson Center’s inaugural Thought Starter event, The Power of Play: Using Playtime to Help Kids Thrive. The mini-summit brought together parents, educators, and early childcare providers from across the city to learn about how and why to ensure kids get enough productive playtime, at home and at school.
On Wednesday, Julia King Pool helped the Robertson Center, Success Academy’s new accelerator for educators, launch its free Wellbeing series for teachers and school staff. With a TED-style Robertson Center “Chalk Talk” she kicked off The Mindful Teacher: Harnessing the Power of Your Attention to Unleash Your Best School Year Yet.
