Abstract/Description

As educators, we have to be aware of our own trauma in order to recognize and support our students as they manage traumatic life events. This conversation will be a space to interrogate what that trauma looks like and how we as educators can support students as they navigate difficult life events that can impact their academic performance. The conversation will reflect on ways traumatic events have impacted classroom techniques.
