During the 2020-21 school year, empathy will be essential to learning. The impact of the pandemic, along with the economic, political, and cultural upheaval in our country, has created a massive amount of trauma and distraction. For teachers to teach, and students to learn, we are all going to need to expand our understanding and practice of empathy.
For these reasons, I created these videos for the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District in California. I hope the videos help clarify elements of empathy that we can all share. Please feel free to contact me with questions and ideas.
