Just presented my ‘teacher mental health’ session on March 30th at the New England League of Middle Schools’ conference in Providence. The 75′ workshop provided strategies for managing stressors linked to challenging behavior. Forty middle school educators attended the presentation from all six states, with active participation throughout the activity. Received multiple inquiries from administrators to assist their schools after the workshop. All educators should attend this presentation to maximize their coping skills.
“I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Perras’ instruction in the Ecological Model during my first year of teaching (2006) in one of the largest urban high schools in CT. The elements of classroom design and positive rewards set high expectations for my students to achieve. I was able to keep my students engaged and excited about learning while managing even the most difficult learners with his strategies.”— Lea Catherman, Biology Teacher, Central High School, Bridgeport, CT
