Guest blog: Teacher’s experiences help students navigate mental health MHA Admin Wed, 09/27/2023 – 08:10 September 27, 2023 by Michael Cullinane
As a 46-year-old veteran high school teacher, I often worry my students will soon write me off with an “Okay, Boomer” response. Although a member of Generation X, technically I’m closer in age to my Baby Boomer predecessors than the Zoomers in my classroom, but they just see me as the older guy behind the desk.
My students are navigating a world that looks a lot different from the one I grew up in. But even as technology, trends, and even the challenges we face evolve, the fundamental need for support and understanding remains constant.
