Teacher-Student interactions are nurtuting, encouraging, and redemptive. This is a place where mistakes are welcome and students are empowered to grow, and adults use restorative practices to help students learn from their mistakes. SEL and restorative practices are naturally the Phoenix Way! On any given day, you will notice it in the way staff respond to students, casual conversations, instructional practices, adult-to-adult interactions, wraparound supports and more.
Teachers receive SEL lessons from the school-based SEL Team. Based on needs, teachers are encouraged to modify lessons. Students have access to the SEL curriculum, and during instructional moments SEL skills are connected to the academic standard. Self self-expression is encouraged and their voice is welcomed. Teachable moments are a norm to allow students to raise topics that are relevant to what they are going through in the moment.
