We will spend some time talking about the ever-increasing mental health concerns in the classroom and how our staff are coping with the added stressors. We will explore what “trauma” means for kids and adults alike, what it means to be “trauma informed” and what it is that is most helpful following a significant trauma. We will discuss the research regarding the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and how this shows up in the classroom. We will talk about the necessity of leaders assisting staff in keeping their “lid on” and reminding them, as often as we can, that they are the difference makers. 

We will highlight the struggles that we face in our province that show up in our classrooms and we will discuss some potential approaches that may assist in helping our staff keep our kids (and their families) regulated and supported.
