Caught Being Kind: How a Caddo Parish Middle School Teacher Promotes Positive Behavior

How schools create healthy and happy school environments, including how to implement systems where positive student behavior is encouraged and rewarded, is an important conversation happening in all corners of our state and nation. It’s even the topic of a first-of-its-kind summit to be hosted by the Louisiana Department of Education later this month. This inaugural blog post spotlights a Caddo Parish teacher who has found a simple but effective way to promote kindness in her school community.
