The Power of a Simple Question and a Simple Equation
In this episode I will share with you two powerful strategies for success for your children. One is a simple question, the other is a simple equation, but both pack a powerful punch! And both have the power to be transformative for your children and for you!

Creating a Safe and Comfortable Learning Environment While Homeschooling
Hello, everyone, and welcome to the inaugural episode of ‘School of Success’, hosted by me, Sheila Gerrish! Having worked as a School Principal and Administrator for over twenty years now, I’ve seen first hand how many of my students have been affected by a lack of encouraging mentorship throughout their formative years. For so many young people, this assistance is one of the key factors to them achieving success, both in their personal lives and from an educational perspective. Parents, caregivers, and teachers alike all have a responsibility to foster safe and open learning environments, particularly now as quarantine has made homeschooling the norm. Through this podcast, I want to offer my advice on how we can empower our children through education, rather than make it an experience that feels stressful or discouraging for them. I’ll be sharing strategies, tips, and resources that have been proven to help students in the past, as well as share some of my own anecdotal expertise from my tenure as a Principal. If all of this has caught your interest and you’d like to learn more, then tune in to Episode 1 of School of Success! In This Episode, You Will Learn: An introduction to myself, Sheila Gerrish & Why I love the ‘Seattle Seahawks’ (1:13) How this year has activated our ‘fight or flight’ response (4:40) Why we need to alleviate the stress and anxiety in our own lives in order to help our children effectively (6:02) Ways to support your children’s at-home learning environment (7:16) How to ensure your child feels physically and emotionally safe while being taught at home (9:08) The impact that parental encouragement and support has on a child’s learning experience (11:33) What I hope to achieve through this podcast (16:17) See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
