Why Trauma-Informed Teachers?

  • 46% of students under 17 have experienced a traumatic event.
  • 26% of children under 4 have experienced a traumatic event.

As educators, we care immensely about our students beyond the classroom. We worry about their safety and well-being once they walk out our doors.

In each of our classrooms, there are students who have experienced trauma during their lives and they bring this trauma with them into the classroom. Also known as Adverse Childhood Experiences, trauma can impact our students’ brains, hearts, and bodies.

Trauma can alter the development of the brain and affect student learning, behavior, and emotional regulation.
