Walk In My Shoes Programs 
The Walk In My Shoes Program is a set of interactive empathy-building activities that can be tailored to meet the needs of your school. This program was developed in collaboration with Floris Elementary PTA, staff and administration. 

The purpose of Walk In My Shoes is to:  
  • Increase knowledge--by providing information about learning differences, developmental challenges, and medical issues;  
  • Build empathy--by providing opportunities to take the perspective of others;
  • Build skill--by helping students identify strategies they can use to support a friend.
This program has been offered yearly at Floris E.S. since 2015, has expanded to more than a dozen area schools, and reached more than 10,000 students.
