Ms. Lisiewski and Ms. Mahlooji are teachers. They like their own personal space. They know that most of their students also like their own personal space.
Many adults feel uncomfortable when other people invade their personal space. This may happen when you ask for hugs, rub on someone, grab someone or hug without asking.
Students may also feel uncomfortable, angry, or sad when others invade their space.
It is important to respect everyone's personal space. That way everyone can feel comfortable in school and learn. If you feel like you need a hug, you may ask your family members at home or hug yourself!
It is also important to stay in your own personal space in the school yard. Touching, pushing, hugging, or hitting someone may make them feel uncomfortable or it can hurt them. It may also spread germs. Keep your personal space in the schoolyard so everyone can stay safe.
