I am truly grateful for the advancement of technology that today we can easily get to know and even make friends with people from near and afar. My VIA Journey gives me an opportunity to get to know 3 persons for their strengths and passions. They are my Discussion Group members:
- Member No. 1 – A school social worker providing his service in a secondary school. His highest strength is Religiousness and Spirituality. He hopes to promote the concept of positive psychology in his school.
- Member No. 2 – A teacher in a secondary school. His highest strength is Forgiveness and Mercy for which he thought is necessary for a teacher given the learning and behavioral diversity of students. He is with us in the journey to learn more about character strengths in order to help his students to have a better development .
- Member No. 3 – A psychologist working in a school. Her top character strengths are Kindness and Love where she uses to support students in need, their parents as well as teachers and the school community.
If only teachers and educators all around the world are like them — teaching and supporting students with passion, love and respect as the key principles for education. Students under their care are really a fortunate bunch.
