I am currently in the middle of "Transforming the difficult child"- the idea is that we do noticing, not direct out compliments for those babies who haven't had kind words said about them in a while. So far it's been really informative and valuable

There’s a Facebook group. New and Beginning Teachers Workshop that has been gathering a lot of resources

Feel free to check out the resource thread! I’ve posted lots of ideas. All of the strategies are meant to help build resilience. I know this is kind of a long watch (17 minutes), but it is SO helpful, especially if you’re working with a lot of children who have significant trauma. It’s basically language to use to take children from fight or flight to their front/logic part of the brain so they’re ready to learn. The whole Conscious Discipline YouTube channel has great examples of strategies in action: https://youtu.be/cjVJV7G8x3s

Definitely try to go with a restorative practices model. When you set values and guidelines for the circles, they become the values for the class. I also use academic circles for instruction. It has transformed my classroom

What grade are you being moved to?

I teach in a similar setting though it is high school. Have you looked into restorative practices at all? The resources are amazing. I would also look into Yoga Foster and Social Emotional Learning resources. There are some really excellent ways to build up a community there and I always reference them to new teachers who teach in NYC and DC (the communities where I have taught)

Question about inclusion…. I’ve been teaching inclusion for 5 years so I’m still a newb, but a first year coworker of mine said she got points off on her observation because her kids were scattered in the classroom and she was having to move from kid to kid to assist. While I see the point of putting them together for convenience, I don’t agree with this at all! To me this is like singling them out by putting them all together instead of INCLUDED amongst peers. What do y’all think?

Please pray for me. I’m going back into the classroom soon. I praying for all of you too. This may be a rough reentry. But I know God is with us. He can absorb the bounce.

Just curious...What does it look like in your building when there are no substitutes available anywhere within the district's pool? Are you combining classes or having teachers cover an hour during their plan period? Do counselors, building administrators, and other "specialized" positions rotate in to cover the classes that are without teachers? It has become a daily challenge to staff our classes this year and I feel that the burnout rate is going through the roof!

I have taught at 5 different schools yet only Henrico Co PS place a moderate value on Behavior intervention as a means of response to disruptive behavior, creating rapport , restorative circles and trauma informed care. Suspensions are not a long term deterrent to violence, bullying and resolving our children’s mental health issue. Are your school systems supporting consistent and prompt intervention policies?

We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
