Hope is the answer for the student, classroom, district, and the community.
Focused hope interactions enhance personal enthusiasm and increase belief in a better tomorrow. This will arch over to others, boosting their hope level as well. It is infectious.
The science of hope has proven that children with higher hope scores have better grades, attendance, and graduation rates. Hopeful children are more engaged academically and perform better.
Children who have hope are more capable of self-regulating their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Hope allows them to flourish in their overall well-being.
Classrooms with more hopeful students see decreased numbers of chronic absenteeism, fewer incidences of truancy, and lower drop-out rates, even when controlling for social economic status.
Teachers with more hope are better at implementing strategies to reduce burnout and stress, increasing their ability to thrive in and out of the classroom.
