Teachers keep hope alive

teachers at responsive classroom training

A group of elementary teachers and principals from across the district attended the Responsive Classroom National Teachers’ Conference. The theme of the conference was “Hope” and staff learned strategies to empower students, support them through trauma, respond to their cultural needs, and provide opportunities for active learning.

Responsive Classroom is a program designed to help strengthen students’ social, emotional and academic growth by creating safe and welcoming school communities. All of our elementary school teachers use Responsive Classroom to help students get to know one another better, while also building relationships within their classrooms.
