Pausing In The Schools!
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Kathy Rusert, Science Education Consultant and teachers and staff at Acorn Elementary School in Mena, Arkansas. Kathy has received numerous state and national awards over the years for her creativity in the field of education. Kathy saw the PAUSE FOR INSPIRATION message, imagined its value for teachers, staff and students and took the initiative to teach a PAUSE class to the teachers and staff at her school. Now, she shares that “Teachers are telling me how they are teaching their kids to use Pause for dealing with situations . . . kids are antsy and wanting to tattle, argue, etc. and a teacher has used this approach to teach them how to handle conflict—and it works!” And, she graciously sent in these photos.
MyPulseNews.com reports that Kathy Rusert was named a “Trailblazing Teacher” by the Center for Green Schools and was recognized as a National Outstanding Educator by Project Learning Tree. Rusert believes strongly in interdisciplinary, hands-on education, as well as opportunities for students to teach others. To pass this on to the next generation, she teaches a Methods of Teaching Science for Southern Arkansas University that introduces future teachers to practical teaching tools, such PLT, that they can easily use in the classroom.
