Hi there & Welcome to A RARE. Education;
I’m your host Kristine Hoestermann and I'm here to give you the inside scoop on RARE.s latest venture. In case you don’t know not only am I the founder and CEO of RARE I am also a clinical social worker in the District of Columbia specializing in school-aged social-emotional learning and behavior development. As we are heading into another school year I’ll be showing you how to apply the strategies that you need in order to make this coming school year a successful one.
Each week, we’ll take a deep dive into topics such as creating structure, keeping consistency, task management, intrinsic based incentive systems, and social-emotional development. Each episode will arm you with the information you need to implement a system that works for you and your family. You’ll also get the chance to hear from guests who are teachers, counselors, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists. I hand-selected these guests because I know they will provide you with the answers you’re looking for when it comes to remote learning and student services.
Each episode will be jammed packed with tools that you can implement right away
As well as strategies you can use over time.
Students and parents are faced with a huge mountain of challenges when it comes to virtual learning. I created this podcast and the accompanying resource center because it was clear to me that the system has failed families in response to this pandemic. The health threats of the COVID-19 virus has caused our society to unexpectedly jump into the world of remote learning and virtual existence. It sounds good in theory what our education system has failed to do is show us how to make a functional classroom at home and foster social-emotional and behavioral development while in isolation.
As both a therapist and a RARE. advocate, I want to shed light on the invisible struggles that we are faced with and provide respite where I can. That’s why I created the “RARE. kinda education” A one-stop reliable and evidence-based resource center full of recommendations, tutorials and pre-made systems to help you create a successful classroom at home.
In addition to the wide release content each week, here you will find three-tier options offering varying bonus episodes, tutorials, customizable resources & more. Take a look around & see if any match the needs of you & your family.
Regardless if you choose to join or take what you learn on the go I am here to help cause no one should have to figure it all out alone.
See you Monday
P.S. In case no one told you today, you are doing great!
