Building a Safe School Climate using Trauma Informed Strategies to Promote Resilient Learners Barb Hansen, Traci Tuttle and Rae White of Muskingum University, Mike Masloski of the Ridgewood Local School District, and Shelly Sowers of Brook Intermediate School
The development of strong school partnerships for enhancement of intentional strategies that help students who have experienced trauma to recover and build resiliency will be shared. Muskingum University together with Ridgewood Local and Rolling Hills Local Schools have explored multiple avenues to increase the awareness of our teacher candidates, practicing teachers and administrators, support staff, custodians and bus drivers. Specific success strategies drawn from research have been implemented in classrooms and the P-16 schools. Together we have hosted community forums to broaden the recognition of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), recovery and restoration for a more holistic approach. We will share interactively and through photographs, video-clips and testimonials why having including student leadership and choice is an important part of a dynamic learning environment.
