The mission of the Cotsen Foundation for the ART of TEACHING is to support teachers excel in their craft as teachers. This transformation occurs through a program in which experienced educators receive professional developments, trainings, and coaching to achieve the highest levels of teaching excellence.
Gompers Elementary is pleased to announce that we are offering whole class drumming for selected classrooms using the Beat the Odds® (BTO): Social & Emotional Skill Building Delivered in a Framework of Drumming.
Beat the Odds® is an evidence-based and trauma-informed program that integrates activities from group drumming and group counseling to build core strengths such as focusing and listening, team building, leadership, expressing feelings, managing anger/stress, empathy, and gratitude.
Modeled after the Best Buddies International Program (www.bestbuddies.org), Gompers' Best Buddies program focuses on building friendships between students with and without disabilities. Socialization is one of the simplest, but most often underestimated, solutions to the pattern of exclusion that people with disabilities have faced for decades.
