Review for National School Climate Center, New York, NY, USA
I have worked in the field of education for the past 37 years as a school counselor and a professional developer in the field of school improvement. I have seen first hand what climates are like in schools and work directly with teachers and administrators on improving their schools. Lack of positive school climate and trust among the adults in a building are experiences I have had and as a result my own focus has been on school climate. I was so excited to find the National School Climate Center and Dr. Jonathan Cohen about 3 years ago. The Center is doing such fantastic work teachimg schools the 5 step process for school improvement. It is a systemic change process that takes between 3-5 years at a minimum. They have the expertise, research, personnel and dedication to help any school learn how to improve their climate. I have watched them use deep listening, creative problem solving and collaboration as well as data collection and research to successfully aid schools in their improvement.
