Seminar Schedule

8:30 – 9:30
Session 1: Creating an Environment for Success
Every day in your classroom there are students who struggle with anxiety and depression.  This session will show you specific things that you can do to help these students succeed in your classroom!    Every session of this seminar will give multiple examples at the elementary, middle and high school level. 

This seminar will spend very little time teaching you how to identify mental health issues in your classroom.  While this is important, we believe it is much more important that you create an environment and deliver lessons that help ALL students be successful.  This seminar will show you how to create that environment and deliver instruction to your class that supports students dealing with mental health issues.

9:45 – 10:45
Session 2: Designing Instruction that Works for Everyone 
This session will give you a step-by-step plan to help teachers deliver effective academic lessons to students in any classroom.  The instructional strategies taught and demonstrated during this session are evidence-based to help support students with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.   This seminar is perfect for Teachers, Instructional Coaches, Principals, Instructional Specialists, Department Leaders, Mentors, Superintendents, and anyone involved with improving the instruction that teachers use in their classrooms!

11:00 – 12:00
Session 3: Homework, Grading & Communication Strategies
You have probably heard about “trauma-informed education” and maybe even received training on how to identify certain mental health issues in your classroom.  Are you aware that there are specific strategies that you can easily implement in any classroom to help students with anxiety and depression achieve success in your class?  This session will detail many of those strategies. Every session is loaded with steps you can take the very next day in your school to help ALL students succeed!
