I am a first-grade teacher, and this will be my second year teaching. I "created" the idea of teaching kindness in my classroom because I wanted to teach children how to be kind to one another. The children embraced the idea and I began to see it more and more every day. Sometimes, I would even forget about the kindness lesson, then a child would do something kind to another and that is when I realized it really worked! I had very minimum problems with behavior in the classroom, the children were always calm, nice to each other! It was a wonderful experience, and we even had a Kindness award at the end of the year! I am thrilled to have found this website to share my experience as well as to learn about yours!
