Help Build a Whole Child Community


In this month’s column, Outstanding Young Educator Brad Kuntz says educators can demonstrate what it’s like to be a contributing member of a whole child community.

By personally contributing in the neighborhoods surrounding our schools, by teaching our students to be active citizens, and by bringing community members into the school to be a part of the educational experience, teachers can foster the development of mutually enriching experiences and create a positive, supportive environment for all students.

How do you bring the community into your classroom and into your practice as a whole educator?
