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.
Dr. Don Perras’s Ecological Model provides teachers with a ‘magical’ toolbox to create effective learning environments. His practices are the greatest gift an educator could possess, and the single most important factor in students’ development.— Cathleen M. Greene, Ed.D.
