How We Help Students Develop Resiliency
"Resiliency is the ability to overcome challenges of all kinds—trauma, tragedy, personal crises, plain 'ole' life problems—and bounce back stronger, wiser, and more personally powerful" (Henderson, 2012). It is important for kids to develop resiliency so they can cope with the various hardships they will encounter throughout their lives.
Searching around for information on this topic, I came across this infographic, The 7 Things Administrators Can Do to Help Students Develop Resiliency, that outlines the things administrators do in their role to help kids develop these skills. This graphic does a good job of showing an administrator’s job responsibilities, and how they address the needs of teachers and students and help lead them toward success.
How do you help students develop resiliency in your role? Apply this model to your job to see how your responsibilities help make kids successful. We all must play our part—teachers, parents, administrators, coaches, and community leaders—to help kids develop and become resilient.
