Guilt or shame we inflict on ourselves or others is never helpful. Sometimes adults don’t know how to escape patterns of talking and teaching that can hurt a student, our peers or ourselves. Guest Jeanne Forrester helps us learn how to avoid wounding and build the esteem of students to help them get back on track.
