Hello EdAG NME Trainers,
We have created a Facebook space for all of you to collaborate, share ideas, ask questions, get updates, and build your NME web in Colorado. Many of you are already training staff in your building or soon will be and we hope you can use each other as resources as you continue to grow in your roles. No need to friend each other, just a space to share your genius.
Please check your email or reach out for the Facebook link.
Thanks so much,
Halley and Katie
Congratulations to the EdAG Trauma-Informed Class of 2020, NME Trainers!
Over the past 2 years, these Core Teams have worked tirelessly to complete the Neurosequential Model in Education’s Trainers Program. We have had the honor of facilitating this process and supporting these teams. They have not only completed the hours of independent course work but met monthly (if not more often) to review, discuss, process, apply and plan to bring this knowledge and these concepts to their staff and students. We are continually blown away by the wisdom and commitment of these educators and the impact they have had in their school is profound. This is one of the key aspects of sustainably creating trauma-informed schools and shifting school culture- building the expertise and the champions in the school community. Years of hard work have paid off and they are now official trainers for their schools!
Thank you and congratulations to the following educators:
Cole Arts & Science Academy
Joel Hackler, Melissa Carrasquel-DeNoto, & Kia Abdool
Jennifer Travers, Magen Kilcoyne, Hannah Vanderhorst, & Jen Jackson
North Middle School
Marlaine McMechen, Lesley Rhodes, Jenny C-rado, & Brian Duwe
Honored to have our work with this amazing high school highlighted by The Colorado Trust. Trauma-informed education is transforming the way students are received and treated which allows them better access to education. The Educational Access Group is seeing powerful results by focusing on training educators. Great read! A Denver High School Tests a New Approach to Teaching Kids After Trauma
It has been a very busy start to the 2019-2020 school year!
The Educational Access Group is working with 5 phenomenal schools across Denver and Aurora to sustainably integrate trauma-informed approaches. Some of the schools are well into their 3rd year and others are only a few weeks into this transformative work. As we head into year 4 of this work we continue to be inspired by the educators we get to work with and the positive shifts we are seeing in schools, students and staff. Hope everyone’s year is off to a great start! #education #traumainformed #equity
