[/boc_heading][vc_column_text]

I have published a book, chapters in books, and several journal articles on these topics.

I am passionate about learning more, improving my own practice, and seeking ways to improve the educational system by sharing the stories and experiences of our most vulnerable students.

My deepest desire is for all students to feel welcome, safe, and cared for in their classrooms, so that they can begin to grow and develop socially and academically.

In order for this to happen, we, as teachers, must understand what trauma does to the brain and how it can and will impact their ability to function so that we can accurately interpret these actions and respond appropriately.

To that end, my research strives to tell the stories of students who have had significant challenges in an effort to affect change.

I have published a book, chapters in books, and several journal articles on these topics. Those I am able to freely share on this site, you find here. Others will be added as contracts allow.

I hope you find the articles helpful. If you are interested in engaging in a conversation with me about any of these articles, please send me an email at traumainformeded@gmail.com.
