A teacher in Texas is receiving lots of praise from social media for a mental health check-in board she uses in her classroom. Here's more from FOX:
A Texas teacher has been receiving a lot of online praise for a new method she has rolled out in her classroom to check in with students. It's called a 'mental health check in board,' and it allows students to communicate how they are feeling by using sticky notes.
Jessie Cayton is an 8th grade English teacher at the Cavazos Middle School in Lubbock, Texas.
She has been using forms on Google Docs for the last few years to regularly check in with her students and their emotional state. Recently though, Jessie was inspired to try a new board after she saw an Instagram post by Erin Castillo, a high school English teacher for students with mild to moderate learning needs in San Francisco.
