As a tribes trainer I have had the great privilege of going into many schools and training the whole staff. Every time, delivering Jeanne Gibb’s message, we have a powerful transforming experience.
Participants come to these trainings with varied experience. It doesn’t seem to matter if the teachers are bringing the enthusiasm and knowledge of just entering the profession or are seasoned veterans; everyone walks away with a passion for taking Jeanne’s work and working hard to embed it in their practices. The training gives a great step by step recipe for creating rich learning communities where students’ needs are met and complex curriculum content is embraced and experienced.
Tribes TLC [Tribes] training for a whole staff is a doable and relatively inexpensive way of creating the culture where the social, emotional and academic growth of students and staff can be celebrated. It is an amazing way of creating a positive culture that prepares students for success in the rapidly changing world.
Equally exciting is what can happen when just one Tribes-trained teacher plants the seed for Tribes in a new school. It has happened, more than once. One teacher, trained in Tribes during the preservice year, has great success in implementing the process during the first years of teaching. The success that he/she has in meeting the social, emotional and academic needs of their students becomes contagious. The enthusiasm spills out of the classroom door. Other teachers want the formula this teacher used to create the learning environment and the success in meeting the needs of all, addressing bullying issues, and being proactive to misbehaviour while delivering rich, content driven lessons.
And that’s how it happens…across the United States, Canada, Australia, South America, and various other international communities, educators trained in Tribes TLC model the process, and inspire and influence others to do so.
