Today's guest, Rekina Romes, is no stranger to supporting students who've experience trauma. After you listen to today's episode, you will see that most educators aren't strangers either. One in four children will experience trauma with at least one trauma happening before the age of four. Rekina dives into the complexities of trauma and how educators can extend grace in the classroom to support them. We dive into the difference of opposition and trauma, how trauma literally and biologically alters the brain, and how listening without judgement can be so powerful (and more!).
