I am a teacher at a residential treatment facility. We teach grades 1st to 8th in four multi-grade classrooms of all boys. I currently have a small class size of five boys, ranging from 1st to 3rd grade. These boys have had struggles in their lives due to abuse, neglect, and personal behavioral and emotional issues. It is often a struggle to have the boys play together safely without issues. With Fuel Up to Play 60, I have been able to encourage the boys to play together during recess and other breaks during the day, to encourage activity and better their personal peer relationships. This program has made a positive impact on the students at Pine Haven Boys Center.
