Education in Virtue is very clear, concrete and actionable in its application to shape student and staff behavior. It’s richly rooted in Catholic teaching, while still being philosophically secular enough to implement in any scenario. Simply put, we see more and more ‘ah ha’ moments when discussing behavior. Magnanimity and humility rightly understood, for example, promote great conversation with kids.
I am a HUGE fan and have been practicing the virtues daily in my class. My three, four, and five year olds are flourishing from being exposed to this thought process. I can’t imagine my life or teaching the lives of our future generations any other way!
“It’s a reminder to all of us about how we can live a virtuous life – kind, generous and patient with each other – as we never know where people are coming from or what kind of day they’ve had. It’s teaching that our world needs faith, hope and charity.”
This program has TRANSFORMED our school! Our school is only in its fifth year and after just starting this fall, I am already seeing rapid growth. We are growing everyday with Education in Virtue as our guide. THANK YOU for creating this beautiful program. Many thanks!
