The importance of a healthy classroom for students to engage

Creating a healthy classroom environment is crucial for fostering student engagement and overall well-being. It encourages active participation and interaction by fostering feelings of safety, value, and respect among students.

This engagement leads to deeper learning and better information retention. Additionally, a healthy classroom promotes social-emotional learning, teaching students essential skills like empathy, cooperation, and effective communication.

It also reduces stress and anxiety through clear expectations, consistent support, and opportunities for relaxation.

"It promotes self-expression in the kids; it also promotes communication of wants and needs and healthy forms of expression and interaction. And healthy boundaries around how they would like to be greeted by their teacher. All of that may, in turn, promote the message that their educator hears and listens, says Olivia.
