"Trauma is real. Trauma is prevalent. Trauma can be toxic to the brain and can affect development and learning in a multitude of ways. Schools need to be prepared to support students who have experienced trauma." (Souers & Hall, 2019) Trauma affects mental, physical, emotional and social well-being. This PD series will focus on the effects of trauma, with a specific lens on English Language Learners (ELLs) and newly arrived immigrants. This community of practice will take actionable steps to increase resilience by forming connections, creating predictable routines and improving emotional regulation skills both in ourselves and in our classrooms.
