Middle School


Treat Others How You Want to Be Treated

Middle school students are at an age of transition where a single event can either set them on the path to success or lead them down the road to failure. They often grapple with feelings of self-consciousness, lack of motivation, and insecurity regarding their looks, grades, personality, and family life. For these students, every day may seem like a daunting challenge they’d rather avoid.

The time to teach advanced methods for overcoming challenges and adversity begins in middle school. Introducing challenges that may arise later in life and appear overwhelming can help students develop the resilience needed to face them. As students learn to view challenges, whether big or small, as opportunities, they become more confident with each victory.

Students frequently underestimate the value they bring to society and the significance of their visions for the future of the world. Instilling purpose and vision in students of all ages brings the reality of their future impact into focus. Working to build the knowledge, strength, and diplomacy necessary to fulfill such vital futures can be overwhelming for students. However, downplaying the importance of their future contributions does them a disservice and denies the next generation the opportunity to reach its full potential. Nick Scott excels at setting young adults on the right path, arming them with the tools they need to move forward.
