Character Education

unConference - March 24, 2015


The Sterling Institute hosted a Character Education unConference on March 24 at The Sterling Hall School. Twelve different educators and practitioners from the Greater Toronto Area presented on various character education and positive psychology initiatives currently being implemented in a variety of schools. It is heart-warming to know that there are so many passionate teachers reaching out to students to help them become better citizens. It is also uplifting that so many practitioners are presenting and conducting workshops in schools in order to bring their expertise into the classroom. The Sterling Institute would like to thank the presenters (listed below) for sharing their ideas with the group.
