Curry County Retired Educators

Our guest speaker was Cindy Kleyn-Kennedy, Clovis Municipal Schools (CMS) Instructional Tech Coordinator and weekly columnist for The Eastern New Mexico News. She spoke to us about a program being used in the middle schools called “Capturing Kids Hearts” which addresses today’s needs in the classroom.

This program helps develop positive student-teacher relationships through various methods, such as handshakes, hugs, or fist-bumps between student and teacher.

Through a social contract, students develop self-behavior accountability by creating classroom expectations together and monitoring their behavior.

Another component, according to another account in The Eastern New Mexico News, is “having a safe and healthy school coordinator at each school who assists teachers with classroom management and implementing this program” successfully.

We invite all retired Curry County educators and staff to join us at K-Bob’s at 11 a.m. for lunch and 11:30 a.m. for the program. Our next meeting will be Sept. 3.
