Pocket PD with Sarah from That Funny Teacher
Our guest this episode was Sarah Nahapiet-King, the teacher behind the Instagram account @thatfunnyteacher.
Sarah found out about the Dogs Connect program through an article in Wine with Teacher magazine. From there, she began having conversations with teachers who had wellbeing dogs within her school, slowly building her knowledge of the process and requirements needed to be met in order to have a wellbeing dog. As part of this process. Sarah credits Grant, the founder of Dogs Connect, as being an immense help.
If you’re looking to begin your wellbeing dog journey, or if you’re wanting to see if having a school wellbeing dog is the right move for your school, Sarah’s biggest tip is to have the conversation. She said social media is such a great tool to network and find teachers and schools already within the Dogs Connect program. She said these conversations also helped her to consider what to include when taking her idea to Leadership.
