Simple Interactions has far reaching appeal to community settings where adults and children are interacting. One place where Simple Interactions has been used, as a compliment to Everyday Mentoring Training through The Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern Pennsylvania, is with City of Pittsburgh and Steel Valley School District Crossing Guards. While Crossing Guards do not set foot in classrooms, they are instrumental figures in the learning environments of children. Many children throughout the city of Pittsburgh begin and end their days with crossing guards, giving these individuals a unique opportunity to influence the tone of a child’s day. Crossing guards have small windows of opportunity to interact with a child and a child’s family, yet serve as a trusted marker of care for these children as they safely journey to and from school.
