There are various reasons mindfulness might not be relevant to a student. This PD will teach you how to handle topics like diversity, equity, and inclusion, and trauma-informed care in your classrooms.
Classroom Management & SEL
Classroom management is not separate from social and emotional learning, it's a prime opportunity to model and teach important skills of self-regulation, self-awareness, communication, and more. This PD workshop will also explore what it means to manage a classroom in a trauma-informed way.
