Feelings account for a lot. In fact, according to the Search Institute, youth benefit from possessing Asset #33, Interpersonal Competence. The institute states, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they have empathy, sensitivity and friendship making skills.”
This week, I have had the honor and pleasure of assisting the Russian delegation from our Sister City in Sarov, Russia, and attending the annual Search Institute Conference.
The beauty is that both experiences resulted in an equal amount of learning on my part. We’ll talk about the Search Institute later in the column and to be honest, probably throughout the entire year.
The Russian delegation taught me about community resources they have established that we can only hope for someday. The school that they represented was comprised of 667 students, in first through 11th grade. Their students keep the same teacher in first through fourth grade and then begin to rotate subjects, more like our middle school model.
