She’s getting spit on at school.
He’s barely making it through the day.
They’re refusing to follow straightforward directions.
There’s so much trauma.
Chairs are getting thrown.
Entire classrooms are being cleared for safety.
He’s getting hit.
She’s being threatened.
Kids are fighting in the halls.
There are so many mental health needs.
They feel unsafe.
My teacher-friends are not okay. It’s the third week of October and one teacher-friend of mine said this will be her last year of teaching. Another friend said she’s never seen behavior like this before and she’s been teaching for over 15 years. And yet another said she’s never had this much difficulty connecting with students. And we’re not just talking about middle schoolers, who, let’s face it, often get the ire of disdain for dysregulated, hormonal, reactive behavior. We’re talking about kindergarteners, high school students, and preschoolers.
This is not ok. My friends are not ok.
When I feel this passionate about something and I feel like I can help, like I SHOULD help, I move into action. So, I’m hosting a one-evening, free virtual workshop on why behaviors are so complex right now.
If you’re a teacher, you should be there.
If you’re a parent educator, you should be there.
If you’re a school counselor, you should be there.
If you’re a concerned parent, you should be there.
If you’re a school volunteer or aid, you should be there.
If you’re an administrator… you should DEFINITELY be there.
Tell your friends. Tell your teacher friends. Invite your teacher friends because we’ve GOT to talk about this. You’re not ok.
It’s ok to not be ok. But it’s not ok to be alone.
I’m here for you. Let’s spend an hour, one evening talking about:
- Why things feel so very complex right now.
- 2 things you can do about it right now!
In this one-hour, FREE event, you’ll have access to a licensed psychologist with over 25 years of experience and an entire community of friends. You’ll leave with TWO actionable tools you can take away, share with friends, and begin to have some semblance of sanity again.
Most importantly, you’ll feel heard and seen. You’re not OK. And you’re not alone.
See you in two weeks!
