This book is for all types of learners and teachers at any grade level, K-12. The book is excellent for any classroom, including those addressing special education, differentiated instruction, and interactive learning, or where there’s active engagement and attention to varied perceptual preferences and learning differences. A classroom that optimizes student achievement through collaborative relationship building is given a good deal of attention with activities focusing on mindfulness and determination through persistence. The book’s premise is the classroom, for optimum learning, needs to be a place of comfort. Modeling/living the six international traits of a person of good character (caring, fair, responsible, trustworthy, respectful and good citizenship) is vital, especially in the educational setting. Practical strategies for character building and conversing with others are provided. Living by two ideas: No put downs, only lift ups for oneself and others, and realizing “being enough,” is exactly what you are.
