What legislation is needed in our schools? How do we instill emmpathy and kindness into our fellow humans? What programs are working and where do we need the most growth? All this and more is discussed in this episode with bullying experts Daniel Blanchard, Jamie Ciofalo, Mike Dreiblatt, Kevin Sullivan and Leah Zufall.
Oscar Cielos Staton began his teaching career in 1998 while continuing his passion for film production in Texas. He quickly developed an affinity for working with low socioeconomic Hispanic families. “The lives of my students,” he says “very much mirror the life I once had as an immigrant in this country in a public elementary school. Actually, I tell them they are lucky because they have other students similar to them in the same classroom. My experience was that of a true minority in the classroom. Only one other student in my class spoke Spanish!” As a teacher, he established himself as someone in touch with the student experience. Nowadays Oscar continues his educational journey with the Teach Cow website and his podcast Teachers Talk Live, which brings together teachers from all over the world for talks on K-12 Education.
