In the meantime, join me as I walk you through the journey of joining us in establishing a foundation for your school, workplace, organization, community and home.

Introducing the Two Rule Philosophy: A Journey Towards Well-Being

Welcome to a transformative journey where feeling good and feeling safe take center stage – welcome to the Two Rule philosophy. In the bustling corridors and vibrant classrooms of our school, these two simple yet profound rules form the cornerstone of an environment dedicated to positivity and support. My book focuses on the stories from education, but it does not start or stop there. Feeling good and safe is part of what every individual wants in life from the minute we are born into this world.

The application of these two rules is a foundational piece which can be put into practice in every place and corner of the world. It is my belief to place it into practice in schools because of the high needs we see reflected in our school data, violence, trauma, mental health and society itself. Society is a reflection of what we have allowed to happen with a breakdown in systems, responses, procedures and foundations.

The Power of Feeling Good and Feeling Safe

Imagine a space where every student, teacher, and staff member walks through the doors and immediately senses a welcoming atmosphere. The Two Rule philosophy believes in the inherent power of feeling good and feeling safe. It recognizes that emotions shape our experiences, and by fostering positive emotions, we can create a foundation for growth, learning, and well-being.

Setting the Tone for Positivity

At the heart of the Two Rule philosophy is the commitment to set a tone that resonates with positivity and support. It goes beyond the traditional rules and regulations, emphasizing a mindset that influences every interaction within our community. This philosophy is not just a set of guidelines; it's a cultural shift that radiates through our school, shaping the way we communicate, collaborate, and learn together.

We can set this tone in our workplaces, organizations, and communities. Home, School and Community working together is part of what I believe will bring the true change we all want to see reflected in helping all students achieve. When we are able to change our mindsets to emphasize positive, supportive and collaborative interactions in all we do, change will be seen.

A Community That Thrives

Thriving is not just about academic success; it's about creating an environment where individuals flourish emotionally, socially, and personally. The Two Rule philosophy paves the way for such a thriving community. It encourages everyone to be mindful of their impact on others, fostering a sense of shared responsibility for the well-being of each member.

The value of each individual is a key factor in recognizing all of the divisions we are making has no room in a space where everyone feels good and feels safe. We have to understand there is no need to blow another’s candle out to make ours shine brighter. Create the opportunity for everyone to feel good and safe by recognizing we do not need to battle to find an additional space.
