From the President:
Eaton Academy serves students who benefit from a more customized model of education designed to meet their personal needs. Personal needs are academic, emotional, social, and physical. We focus on the whole student and all that student needs to flourish, succeed, and reach his/her POTENTIAL BEST. Our BEST character education program, developed over ten years ago, is implemented daily. We focus on each letter in BEST for nine weeks, discussing, practicing, and implementing anti-bullying techniques. Students use these tenets and strategies to strengthen self-worth, confidence, and self-esteem. Follow our blog each week to see samples of our tenets, questions to ask oneself, and strategies designed to help students become their BEST!
B-Befriend only those who bring out the BEST in you.
Activities, strategies, interventions, and accommodations: How do you BEST learn information? Auditory: Do you need to hear it? Visual: Do you need to see it? Kinesthetic/Tactile: Do you need to manipulate it?
Auditory: A Visual: V Kinesthetic/Tactile: K/T
Ask yourself these questions? Document your answers.
- Do your friends inspire you or make you feel good about yourself?
- Do the activities you engage in with your friends lead you to make good or bad choices?
- Have those choices affected your life positively or negatively?
- Are your friends “there for you” when you most need them?
Next week we will post auditory, visual, and kinesthetic/tactile strategies to help you practice how to befriend those that bring out the BEST in you. Enjoy the journey on becoming your Potential BEST!
