Hope Is The Single Best Predictor Of A Child’s Ability To Thrive.
Having hope — which can be learned — reduces the impact of toxic stress and builds resilience against adverse childhood experiences.
In increasing numbers, educators are seeing more children exposed to adversity, stress, and trauma. A nationwide study of 700,000 students found only about 45% report being hopeful. And this study was before the pandemic. The impact is felt in classrooms as students struggle with academic performance, disruptive behaviors, and emotional insecurity.
But when you nurture hope in students, you change the trajectory from despair to thriving. The results echo throughout the campus. Higher hope equates to academic improvement, emotional livelihood, decreased drop-outs, and thriving teachers.
Bring hope to your students through My Best Me, the world’s first hope-certified social emotional learning program.
