Supporting Students' Well-being

Check out these professional development opportunities that support student well-being

The Moore Well-Being Program

Sometimes we have the best of intentions when we implement a program. We follow the steps, monitor progress, and maybe even achieve some defined goals. Yet if a program is truly to be effective, it has to impact more than an issue or objective. It has to change us as a person. Only then will we carry forward all we have learned in all that we do. The Moore Well-Being Program affects change from the inside out.

Anti-Bias Teaching

Helping teachers understand how they can actively challenge systemic bias and teaching students how to challenge bias is empowering for both teachers and students.

Becoming aware and learning how powerful we all are to make the world a better place is a helpful way to tackle the difficult subjects of identity, bias, discrimination and prejudice.

Classroom Management Support

Educators realize that we are losing precious instruction time to pesky low-level discipline challenges. We all must realize that academics and discipline go hand in hand. An educator can be the best content instructor on campus but without the ability to lead the classroom, the best lessons will remain undelivered.

I offer two classroom management trainings:  Time to Teach (offered for college credit), as well as classroom management workshops that are customized to your needs.

Developmentally Appropriate Instruction Training

Early childhood education is a tricky business in the age of high stakes testing. I work with PreK-12 administration and teaching staff to help design developmentally appropriate, child centered learning environments and experiences. The duration and frequency of the workshops depend on the needs of your school. This training is appropriate for both new and experienced educators as the content is designed specific to your community.

Developing and Refining Assessments

Why limit assessment to paper and pencil? This workshop helps teachers understand the myriad of information that can be gathered from different forms of assessment beyond paper and pencil. The duration and frequency of the workshops depend on the needs of your school. These workshops are appropriate for K-12 staff, both new and experienced teachers.

What does it mean to teach for equity? I create workshops and design 1-on-1 coaching to help educators  understand how language is constantly changing, how they are uniquely positioned to address the needs of all of their students and what are some resources they can use to help their students thrive.

Teachers are eager to ensure that all of their students are receiving what they need and I can help make that happen.

Executive Function

These 12 skills are responsible for everything we do and many educators are unaware that they exist. Is organization a problem for students? Is impulse control a challenge for some students? When teachers and parents learn about executive function, they can become much more intentional about providing opportunities for children and youth to develop these necessary skills.

Inquiry Instruction Training

Shifting from teacher directed to student centered instruction is the focus of these workshops. Helping teachers understand how to create study units based on student interest and instructional needs is done by modeling the process with teachers directly within these workshops. The duration and frequency of the workshops depend on the needs of your school. These workshops are appropriate for Pre-K — Grade 12 staff, both new and experienced teachers.

Reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing are the content areas that you can choose to focus on with a literacy workshop. Based on the needs of your staff, we’ll co-create an agenda that will help them get to a place where they feel competent and confident as literacy instructors. The duration and frequency of the workshops depend on the needs of your school. These workshops are appropriate for Pre-K — Grade 12 staff, both new and experienced teachers.

Social-Emotional Learning

There are so many resources available to support students’ healthy social and emotional development. Teachers can learn a multitude of powerful tools to help students self-regulate such as deep breathing techniques and bio-feedback. Tools like talking circles, for one, can also help build social awareness.

"It is no longer a question of IF we need to support the well-being of students in our schools, it is a question of WHEN."

Look at the evidence supporting the need for greater well-being among students

  • A study published in a 2018 edition of School Health found that "physical activity levels and proper nutrition significantly predicted achievement scores... Thus, the active, healthy nutrition group scored higher on reading, math, and science standardized achievement tests scores.”
  • Award winning psychologist Elliot Aronson writes of how the building of empathy and compassion in the classroom must be achieved if we are to provide a safe learning environment for our children.
  • A 2011 study published in Frontiers in Psychology found that adolescent students who meditated in school experienced less reactivity than those who did not.
  • Only 45% of public high school students surveyed feel challenged in school, according to the Indiana University’s 2013 High School Survey of Student Engagement.
  • According to the 2016 Children's Mental Health Report by the Child Mind Institute, “One out of every five children in the US meets criteria for a major mental disorder”
  • The Child Mind Institute report also stated: “More than 77,000 children in special education receive suspensions or expulsions for more than 10 cumulative days in a year—including children with autism, anxiety and learning disorders.”
  • A 2010 University of Essex study reported that just a few minutes of ‘green exercise’ can have a significant impact on cognitive well-being and self-esteem, especially with young people
  • An Indiana University study revealed that 86% of the students surveyed said they were bored in class either sometimes or often.
  • Only 61% of the public high school students surveyed in the Indiana University study felt that their school work made them curious to learn about other things
  • Based on a 2014 survey published by the Department of Education, black students are suspended and expelled at a rate three times greater than white students.

Look what people are saying about Dr. Jenn Moore and her well-being services!

Jennifer was the principal at my daughters’ school. She was very warm and welcoming toward parents and children. Everyone felt comfortable coming to her for advice or problems and she always addressed whatever situation promptly and accurately. Children were given the chance to reflect on their behavior and then calmly talk it out. In fact, in all my years there, I have never seen children fighting. Everyone's voices were always heard by Jennifer.

Dr. Moore was a great resource and support at my son's school by being a big proponent of educating the whole child. She had dialogues with kids about wellness and conveyed the importance of sleep, rest and a healthy diet to families. She was a role model for democracy, fairness and inclusion as she worked to make all families feel heard and respected.

Ms. Moore was my principal at AGC for a few years and she was awesome at it! She was very nice and she would always smell good like cupcakes.  When our class was having trouble, Ms. Moore would come and talk to us about how we can fix the problem and our actions. When we were done talking, the problem would be fixed all because of her.

Ayanna, student

Jenn Moore is one of the most innovative educators that I've ever known. She's not only aware of the recent trends in education, she also has a way of blending them together to meet the individual needs of her students and families, in away that causes her to listen to the heartbeat of the community.
