For the Parents and Administration

For the Administration

Length of time: 30-60 minutes
Intention: How to Uplift Your Students

What we will do:

Teachers are more than just educators. They are parental and counseling figures, too. They educate and influence more than just mental subjects such as math and reading...they are called upon to also teach their students about social and emotional wellness as well.

This is why it is so important that they, too, are aligned with what the children are learning through a G.U.T program. It will allow them to educate, reinforce, and practice the tools and methods in the moment and potentially help a child thrive during a challenge.

For the Parent/Guardian

Length of time: 30-60 minutes
Intention: How to Be an Uplifting Parent/Guardian

What we will do:

There is no greater influence than a parent or guardian that has consistent interaction with a child. Elementary school is considered the formative years. Each moment can make a difference in how they develop emotionally and they look at themselves, and they treat themselves, and others.

It is incredibly powerful, and nurturing, when a parent can support their child through the Waves of Yuck. Even more powerful when they can do it when the child is tossing that Yuck right onto them.

This presentation will do two main thing: 1) Support the parent/guardian with knowing how to navigate through those moments in an uplifting way, and 2) Provide ways that the parent/guardian can reinforce and practice what is being taught during a G.U.T program.

About the Facilitator: Aimee Zakrewski Clark, MA, LMFT

Aimee is a licensed psychotherapist, practicing for over 15 years. She has a Master's Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and is a dissertation away from completing her doctorate in Holistic Psychology. As a result, she has an integrative approach to therapy – and life! As a mother of two young girls, she is very active in their school as a volunteer, PTA member, Red Ribbon Week Coordinator, and Co-Leader of the Kids for Peace chapter. In her study of human nature, she has consistently observed challenges between students at an early age. This motivated her to start the Girl Uplifters Team™ with her daughters. She quickly saw the benefit of adapting the exercises for all genders, which is why the school programs are now being offered to boys and girls.
She loves to have fun and use the body, mind, and heart – so her events always include movement, laughter, music, creativity, and breathing. Overall, her intention for an assembly is to help each child plant the seeds for uplifting themselves and others. By teaching a child to consistently strive for kindness and positivity – it can shift their perspective and actions throughout life’s challenges. The exercises are enjoyable, simple, and effective – allowing them to leave with at least one solid tool on how to do that.
