Guest speaker for professional development?

Amber Sams ·
Hello! Does anyone know of someone my district could bring in for a professional development session on ACES in education? We are located near Allentown, PA. We are interested in someone who could speak to all levels, k-12, but it wouldn't have to be all at once, and we have funding available from a grant. Thank you!

Hi Amber, A teacher colleague of mine and I, a family doctor, have presented about ACEs, Resilience and Trauma-Informed Approaches to the entire West Shore School District (near Harrisburg) professional staff, along with the film Resilience, which you would have to get through Tugg (or you could use Paper Tigers, also from Tugg).

Seeking Speakers/Trainers in Virginia on Trauma Informed Schools

Elizabeth Cranford ·
Hello, I am working on creating a list of possible PD ideas for my staff (elementary school in Winchester, VA). Our staff is very interested in learning how to appropriately support students who have experienced trauma or ACES (not what ACES are). They are asking for practical takeaways that they can implement in their classrooms. Who have you heard & loved?

We are currently working with Jobs for America's Graduates on making their program Trauma Informed.

HI Elizabeth, I have done a couple trainings in Virginia focused on this - I can share contact information for the organizers or share the evaluation results of the talk. I typically share a google drive full of resources; and my edited book Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students is designed to provide simple strategies for many educators to implement or consider. Feel free to message me if you want to chat more. eric.rossen@gmail.com

Re: Be part of a breathtaking tipping point !

Duan In case you were not aware the national education association is supporting teachers who have traumatized students in their classrooms. So you have union support for trauma informed education. See the article at Best practices for supporting and educating students who have experienced domestic violence or sexual victimization. http://www.nea.org/home/62845.htm
