“Our teachers and staff are our front line. As we continue to build a trauma-sensitive school, the weight of teaching and carrying the stories of students becomes heavy. Research shows that investing in staff is critical to this work. Our project involves focusing on staff, providing training on SEL competencies, stress, compassion fatigue and self-care. We want to equip our staff with knowledge and practical skills to use throughout the school year as we do this rewarding, challenging work. Desert Cove is grateful to receive this award that will allow us to be our best for our students.”
