Discussed 'teacher mental health' issues on WSHU, Fairfield, November 7th, 2019, with a panel of other educators. My comments reflect the innovative program I designed to nurture teachers' psychological welfare by enhancing their coping ability managing challenging behavior. Districts should allocate training to address this serious issue.
Also appeared on WSHU in June (2020) to discuss 'virtual learning' challenges for 2020 - 021 school year. Emphasized adjustments required to conduct online lessons that complement students' varied learning requirements. Aligned suggestions with my 'differentiated instruction' training webinars.
