-Community Schools Offer Self Esteem Class by David Baker of the Hells Canyon Journal As part of the Community Schools adult education program, a class on self esteem will be taught by professional counselor, Nan Steinebach, beginning Monday, January 6th. According to Nan Steinebach, "the focws of the class will be learning a new idea about what self esteem is --- getting away from the old models of self esteem, like simply telling yourself you're an OK person. We'll be learn- ing some of the obstacles to self esteem, and helping people set goals, as to how they will go about achieving greater self esteem. "I define self esteem as the disposition to meet the challenges of life. I've seen it likened to physical fitness -- you can never have too much of it." Nan holds a degree in counseling, and is now in her fitch year as a counselor with Mountain Valley Mental Health, Baker City, working through a satellite program at Pine Eagle Clinic in Halfway. Cost of the 7-week course, which needs at least six students, will be $15. The minimum age for students in this class is 16.
