LuminUS Academy works closely with educators to improve the health of their classroom and the learning experience for both them and their students. LuminUS Academy teaches how to create a safe and positive learning environment that the educators, students and parents desire. This approach is unique as it mindfully tends to the important needs of everyone in the class including the students, teachers, early childhood educators and educational assistants by building meaningful connection while co-creating community.
What do we mean by health? We take a holistic approach by tending to the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health of the students and educators. Each person contributes to the overall health of the classroom, which is defined by and created through individual and collective behaviours. LuminUS tends to this overall health by creating the conditions for meaningful connection to occur on a regular basis. The LuminUS Power of Connection Wheel depicts the long term transformation that results from focusing on connection.
How do we do this?
The LuminUS Academy uses clear intentions, simple frameworks and easy-to-apply methods (same) to teach educators how to consistently co-create an environment that supports connection and learning leading to success. The LuminUS Success Map explains our methods and our processes. We illuminate the path to long term change by shifting behaviour to life nurturing inputs consistently. Results can be seen immediately within one session and with practice and over time, these results compound into transformation and ultimately the desired results for the learning environment.
Do you sometimes feel that the demand of the curriculum supercedes the needs of the students? Do you sometimes feel like the energy of the classroom could could be better and more conducive to learning but you are not sure how to change it?
When we regularly flip-flop between life-nurturing and life-depleting inputs, the classroom can feel chaotic and over-stimulating. It takes a commitment to life-nurturing input behaviours to shift the energy of the learning environment into a calmer, more peaceful and productive space. This space makes learning more accessible, social interaction more positive while supporting the mental and emotional health of every individual within the classroom.
LuminUS Academy offers coaching, mentorship, training, facilitation and resources to help educators understand and use simple frameworks and easy-to-apply methods to create a life-nurturing environment that supports success on an ongoing basis.
