While teaching a class at Nashua Community College, I gave my students a “kindness assignment” and had amazing results! The tremendous response to this project made me want to take this assignment beyond my own classroom. I have developed ideas for enhancing the anti-bullying movement by providing this blog as a free resource for teachers and community organizers. Together, by promoting kindness, we can take a positive step and move towards what everyone wants which is a safe and enjoyable environment for all students.
As a health care practitioner, I treat clients in my office and at the Sophia Gordon Cancer Center at Lahey Clinic in Massachusetts. I feel fortunate that I have been able to observe the long lasting impact that a small act of kindness can bring.
The Sequin Of Kindness has a proactive approach to ending the bullying epidemic — Kindness Prevents Bullying. My mission is to introduce the blog into classrooms of all grade levels and community organizations.
As the administrator of the blog, I post all the stories; schools and individuals are able to keep their information confidential. There are NO FEES to use the blog. I look forward to the possibility of bringing this blossoming project to your school and/or community. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
