While itʼs important to teach kindness to our students, itʼs just as important to model the lessons of kindness that we teach. There are plenty of examples of how bullying and harassment arenʼt just issues for kids. Just look at how poorly some politicians, athletes, and other celebrities treat each other in social media.
We may not be in that stratosphere, but we too must be careful not to set a bad example from our own posts on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Just as we tell the students to be careful with what they say or how they say it online, be mindful as well in our lives.
Be the example of what we what our students to be.
