S5 Episode 3: Where School Safety Policy and Practice Collide (Part 2)
Elama Dzanic joins Angelia and Mary to continue the conversation around school safety. Elma champions the idea that the level of connectedness our students feel to our school communities, both emotionally and socially, is just as important as a student’s academic success. She emphasizes that it is the the authentic relationships created among and between students and adults in a school community that develops safety and security. Elma calls upon us to assess our own biases and to hold space for challenging topics in our classrooms. Listen in to hear some of Elma’s experiences as she provides us knowledge and expertise on how to bring about the dialogue that every child needs to feel safe and secure within their school community.
