TIC (March, 2019) – Positive Relationships & Findlay City Schools!
Our schools are overflowing with caring and passionate professionals. Together (e.g. bus drivers, paraprofessionals, school counselors, food service staff, coaches, speech / occupational / physical therapists, administrators, secretaries, teachers, librarians, technology, custodians, maintenance, school psychologists, and nurses) we have the opportunity to synergize our trauma-informed practices to take FCS from Good to Great. While the challenges in education continue to grow, Trauma Theory provides the science to create shifts in our interactions to ameliorate the impact of trauma exposure on student’s learning and behavior. Positive relationships are the number one strategy in helping students heal and recover from adverse childhood experiences. Everyday, we have the privilege of building relationships with students and co-workers. In doing so, we are modeling healthy relationship skills for our students and creating another level of fulfillment and satisfaction in our profession. You are invited to view this video from Kelly Cheney and Lauren Parriott as they share how the practice of trauma informed care has impacted their professional lives.
