"What was your key takeaway from this event?"

 

  • The importance of empathy, developing emotional vocabulary, and the idea that emotions are constructed.

  • My emotions are more transparent than I realize, phrasing can promote better empathy, relationships promote trust promotes comfort promotes learning!

  • I have so much to learn! I think I can take away that I can regulate my own emotions and that will help me, help students. I am still processing all of the information and am excited to apply my learning!

  • Some fresh ideas and approaches, and some research theory

  • To listen with my heart. Empathy is NOT the same as sympathy. Empathy is a way to connect with others.
