Health Students Discuss Quality Relationships

IMG_0574

When most people think of Mr. Jeff Hess, they often think of the Physical Education teacher who can frequently be seen taking students outside for various activities, or as “Coach Hess” the varsity coach of our Ranger baseball team. However, one of Mr. Hess’ most important roles is as the junior high Health teacher. Mr. Hess discusses a myriad of topics with our junior high students, from one’s emotional well-being, to physical safety, and currently, the importance of healthy romantic relationships. This week, students have discussed the qualities of romantic relationships, the importance of balance in relationships, responsibility for one’s self, allowing each partner to change and grow over time, and the importance of trusting and respecting one another. In what is often a discussion-based classroom, Mr. Hess shares real life stories from his own family and from what students observe through pop culture. Students ended the week discussing good communication strategies such as, not raising one’s voice when attempting to resolve conflicts, and muting the television when having important conversations with loved ones.
