By |September 20th, 2017|Mom, Teacher|0 Comments

I recently attended TBRI training as part of my continuing ed being a CASA volunteer.  Within the first 15 minutes of the 7 hour training, I thought to myself, “Where has this knowledge been all my teacher-working-with-kid life?!”

TBRI, Trust-Based Relational Intervention, is geared towards looking at kids’ behaviors through a trauma lens.  It was developed […]

We would say this cheer while looking at a picture that represented each letter + sound.
