These workshops are divided into 2 series: principles and application. Each series contains 5 sessions each designed to address areas of improvement needed academically and non-academically to better serve identified and unidentified students that have been affected by A.C.E (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and to help educators implement a more universal approach to trauma-informed care, which can serve as a preventative measure before students require more targeted and intensive supports.

A culture for learning begins in the individual classrooms. It is the collective thinking habits and belief in self that a student obtains first as an individual trying to assimilate into a new environment, second as a student using the information we give them to navigate life outside of the school environment. It's time to take inventory. When we plan and assess routines, are we focusing on the needs of our students? Do our students have a voice? Outside of the teacher-student relationship, positive classroom culture is one of the most important elements of a successful learning environment. Participants will learn new skills and habits to help develop, polish, and enhance their natural inclination to interact with and engage students.
