Caring for Ourselves is Caring for Our Students
Speaker: Jessica L. Teperow, Director of Prevention Programs, Building Healthy Communities by Ending Domestic Violence, REACH Beyond Domestic Violence
Open to nonmembers for a $100 nonmember fee
Description: Every day, educators bear witness to the impacts of trauma in their classroom. Young people share their stories with us through behaviors (acting out, withdrawing, overachieving), attitudes (angry, distracted, anxious), and their own words. We care deeply about our students and creating a safe and supportive learning environment. As teachers, we also have our own stories and our own pain- both past and present. The goal of this workshop is to create a space to acknowledge the cumulative toll bearing witness to trauma can have on us, and develop strategies to care for ourselves and support one another in doing this important and impactful work.
