PARKERSBURG, W.Va (WTAP)- School may be out for the summer, but Wood County teachers and counselors are still working to provide the best environment for their students.
A group of educators took part in Classroom Emotional Response Training on Tuesday afternoon.
The program included suicide training, orderly classroom training, and mindfulness training to help teachers be better equipped to help students who are experiencing a spectrum of different kinds of trauma.
“What our hope is that our educators will take them back into the classroom, use the tools that they’ve learned, better response, calmer classrooms, just understand where our students are coming from,”
Pamela Santer, a presenter and trainer with the program.
The program was implemented for the county through the Mindful West Virginia grant.
The training took place at West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
