I love including Character Education in my classroom and find it leads to better classroom behavior, while promoting a safe, accepting classroom atmosphere. Not only will you see the benefits in your classroom though, but you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you are teaching to the heart, as well as to the head. Helping our students grow socially and emotionally can reap lifelong benefits.
