The LPIE Podcast series turns its attention this week to the arc of student growth into adulthood.
Though Acalanes students have made it through the middle school years, Episode 4’s focus on Stanley Middle School gives us good insights into how to prioritize the whole student, regardless of where our children are in their growth path. Adam speaks with three prominent Stanley staff members, Stanley Principal Betsy Balmat, Counselor Mary Nolan, and Psychologist Melodi Dewey. The panel explains how distance learning has provided a unique opportunity to reach the entire student body, enabling staff to foster communities and create spaces to check-in and discuss topics and issues that are relevant to students right now on a weekly basis – both personal and academic.
