Understand Trauma—Unlock Potential

Students entering the classroom with emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues are often at a disadvantage and struggle to keep up with the demands of traditional learning. Brains affected by trauma require a different kind of instruction—and a special kind of care.

  • How to Build a Resilient Classroom
  • Creating Gritty Learners
  • Neuroscience and Brain-Based Learning Strategies
  • How the Brain Operates—and How to Redirect It
  • Dealing with Students from Traumatic Backgrounds
  • Trauma in Teachers—Fighting Burnout with Self Care


In this workshop, you’ll truly understand what your most vulnerable students need.

You’ll learn how these struggling learners’ brains work and how to create a classroom environment that is sensitive to the needs of all students, regardless of background.

“Mrs. Mitchell’s love for children and her belief that all children can be successful—if we as educators meet them where they are—shine through her presentations. After hearing about her background with students who have experienced trauma, you can feel the joy in her heart and you begin to feel the fire of inspiration growing within yourself.”

– Jamie Guillaume, 5th Grade Teacher, eLearning Coach, Title 1 Director, PowerEd Up Coordinator
