Do you know that 67% of students experience at least two seriously traumatic events in their lives? Because of these traumas, riding a bus, going to the health room, eating lunch, playing on the playground, and simply walking down the hallway can hold emotional triggers for some students.
The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future addresses this by requiring all school staff to use social-emotional and trauma informed approaches in working with students. This is important progress as these traumatic experiences can deeply impact a student’s ability to learn.

Learn more about student trauma and how—no matter your job description—you can make social-emotional learning and trauma informed approaches a part of your professional work at MSEA’s Best Practice Wednesday: Social/Emotional Learning and Trauma Informed Approaches for ESP.
