We envision a day when educators in all positions will be prepared, motivated, authorized, funded, and evaluated as a matter of course to permanently infuse the principles in their own educational systems. This will bring hope and relief to students and staff members alike.

This video series offers historical, practical evidence of what integrating the Three Principles in school systems is like. These recordings may be useful to educators for ongoing professional development, workshops, in-services, or learning community discussions. A free Certificate of Participation for total hours of participation is offered. Contact NRRC.
“Educators Living in the Joy of Gratitude” was coordinated and facilitated by Kathy Marshall Emerson of the National Resilience Resource Center as a charitable service. Representative veteran Pre K-12 educators from four countries who have shared the Principles throughout their careers are featured. Speakers include leaders who learned directly from Sydney Banks and others who never had that opportunity. All presenters volunteered their time and expertise. International digital quality varies. A huge thanks goes to Brett Chitty for generous original production and technical support. To explore the NRRC Education page, click here. Continue below to our video collection.
