Student-Teacher Boundaries in the School Community (LA)
Independent schools thrive on student-teacher relationships. With school-missions that focus on developing the whole child and promoting a nurturing community, teachers serve in a variety of roles in addition to their classroom teaching, including advisor, coach, recess/lunch attendant, club coordinator, retreat leader, and more. Given the variety of interactions that faculty have with students, understanding and maintaining appropriate boundaries between student and teacher is crucial.
This workshop is founded on the premise that establishing transparency, competency, and inclusivity through boundary skills reduces stress and creates a healthy school community for students, teachers, school leaders, and parents. Participants will be introduced to deep listening skills from Stanley King Counseling Institute, and use role playing and case studies to allow participants opportunities to practice in challenging situations that they may face in their schools.
Participants will explore and develop strategies around boundary issues as they relate to:
- Promoting diversity, equity and inclusivity among and between students and teachers
- Communicating over time, and physical and digital spaces
- Navigating social boundaries on and off campus
- Differentiating between confidentiality versus secret-keeping
This workshop is aimed at upper elementary, middle, and high school teachers, advisors, counselors, coaches, and anyone else working with students.
