"Thank you. I appreciate not only the tips, tricks, and skills but also the chance to see so many others sharing similar experiences."
"I have done a lot of webinars and this one by far was the most useful!"
"I loved getting all the routines and specific ideas to help me get started. SEL isn't specifically talked about or implemented in my school, which saddens me. But I am going to make time for it in my virtual teaching time."
"I really liked that you encouraged interaction in the "chat box"...we received lots of great tips, without the possibility of having the training derailed by an excessive talker. Asking us to chat kept us involved in the discussion."
"An amazing eye opening window into the needs of our students."
"This workshop was both informative and practical. You will come away with strategies to implement right away."
"Informative and engaging workshop about how trauma impacts our students and specific and helpful strategies to use in the classroom."
