What educators are saying about Peaceful Family Oklahoma's School Programs

This program worked well for my students. It worked well for my building. With the engagement that I experienced, I would definitely encourage someone to try PFO's program.
Santa Fe South Middle School Counselor

Don't hesitate to bring Peaceful Family Oklahoma in. Especially seeing what I see in a day, more than ever we need to help these kids accept that they're feeling something and know what to do with [those feelings]. Sometimes they need to hear it from another adult. Having someone come in that they could make a relationship with… there was enough time in six weeks to build a relationship with PFO staff and feel safe with what we were talking about.
Jones Elementary Counselor

Students were likely more receptive to the content we taught since they were working with an outside group; they felt as though they were given permission. [Our school] is currently seeing 14-15 year old behaviors exhibited in 5th grade students, so Peaceful Family’s content was appropriate. Teachers felt it was appropriate--they appreciated the vocabulary. This content aligned with the work our district LPCs are doing. This was a beneficial program for our students. PFO was able to go more in depth than staff because our staff doesn’t have the time/resources/training to present on what PFO presented on. Kids have different needs now. This program met those needs.

Very thankful programs like this exist, and that humans as kind as y’all are the powers behind it. Thank you.
Santa Fe South Middle School Teacher

During the winter of 2023, the Peaceful Family team led grades 2-5 in one-hour sessions once a week for six weeks. Before partnering with Wellston Elementary, the team willingly answered questions and shared resources, including the curriculum. The Peaceful Family team engaged students in critical thinking and problem-solving throughout each lesson. Students learned skills for dealing with daily obstacles and conflicts. They used high-quality strategies for managing and instructing students. The lessons were well-planned, and the materials were provided for each student. The team exemplified a model for teaching and learning so much that I encouraged teachers to visit the classroom and learn additional teaching strategies. I would recommend Peaceful Family to educational institutions to support whole-student development.
