Effects of trauma on the brains of children

What I found most interesting was the information relating to the effects of trauma on the brains of children. The fact that stress related to trauma creates toxins in the brain is especially troubling and sad. What I found most valuable was the chapter on mean vs nice and the fact that it can be turned into lessons that make students re-evaluate their interactions with each other. Having students look back at their actions and think about the impact it had on their classmates makes for a better classroom climate. It makes students evaluate their actions, which can then have the effect of them changing their behavior. Having the knowledge that some portion of my students will have gone through trauma, I can better prepare lessons and interactions that will accommodate their needs.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

I felt safe sharing

It has been great to get to know better the other people with whom I work. Timothy did a great job making it feel like a welcoming environment in which we could feel safe sharing.

I would 100% recommend it

Being in Gen Text small groups in high-school has many beneficial aspects. I would 100%, recommend it to other students considering the various benefits in people skills.

A First-Year Teacher’s Obstacles

As a first year teacher there are many obstacles that you do not realize you will face when it comes time to leading your own classroom.

Finding Middle Ground

I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn.

I have learned so much!

Meeting in small groups a couple days a week has helped me learn new skills, qualities, etc. The main goal is to prepare not only me, but all students for the future.
