And Casey DeSantis just announced one plan to help students that Democrats will hate.

Casey DeSantis develops plans to help students outside the classroom

Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis launched an effort to help students in government schools in Florida with “resiliency.”

During the pandemic, the ability to succeed under adverse circumstances became a major challenge for students.

In 2021, she worked with major professional sports teams in Florida, like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Orlando Magic, and the Miami Dolphins, to help students learn how to overcome adversity to succeed, with an event in Orlando.

“We believe that this is an extremely powerful message that these organizations are uniting in an unprecedented fashion for this singular mission of supporting Florida’s children by empowering them to be resilient, to persevere and to have hope,” DeSantis said before the event. 

Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz also spoke at the event about how to survive life’s challenges by discussing his late wife’s decades-long battle with cancer.

“One of the problems with our society is everybody’s got a trophy,” Holtz said at the time. “They don’t know how to handle adversity, the difficulty you’re going to have your entire life.”

Last year, Casey worked with the State Board of Education to introduce a new resilience curriculum into schools to teach grit and perseverance as part of mental health education. 

Florida launches new program for parents and grandparents to mentor students

Casey DeSantis recently announced a first-of-its-kind program nationally to have parents and grandparents help students with resiliency as part of the Florida Resiliency initiative.

Parents and grandparents can become Resiliency Coaches beginning this year by completing one hour of training and completing volunteer work in schools.

Training will begin this summer with volunteer work starting this fall in classrooms, with participants completing the program receiving a $150 stipend. 

“Resiliency is important for students to successfully navigate and overcome life’s obstacles,” DeSantis said. “Florida parents, grandparents, teachers, and mentors will now have opportunities to coach and access to high-quality resources to lead important discussions with students about resiliency.”

Resiliency Florida is working to help students develop resiliency skills crucial for success like grit, perseverance, gratitude, personal responsibility, honesty, and empathy.

“The First Lady’s Resiliency Florida initiative is an innovative way to approach mental health and student support,” Florida Commissioner of Education Manny Diaz, Jr. said. “We are proud to be a part of this historic endeavor and look forward to finding more ways to encourage Florida students to be resilient.”

The Left’s domination of K-12 education has led to the creation of a victim mentality that encourages students to be helpless observers of circumstances outside of their control.

Florida is giving students crucial training to overcome adversity and succeed in life.
