Lunch & Learn: Emotional "First Responders"


About the Event

Teachers are often the first person children look to for reassurance in difficult times. Navigating this responsibility in a time of great change can be challenging. In this training, we look at the best practices for dealing with sensitive topics such as: race, politics and culture
