Our network of K-12 teachers is EVERFI’s heartbeat. That’s why we’ve launched Educator Spotlights: Stories from the Classroom. Every couple of months, we’ll invite you inside the classrooms of inspiring educators to get a glimpse into how and why they keep doing what they do. Enjoy!
“When teachers participate in the lessons with their students, it gets really enriching. I can see the questions popping up in the students’ minds and that’s where the engaging discussions begin.”

As middle school guidance counselors, Brian and Jill know how important it is to talk their students through the steps of building and maintaining healthy relationships. Here, they open up to Local Schools Manager Peter about how their students’ curiosity was sparked when they used Character Playbook, leading to deeper conversations around healthy relationships.
