What a great article for everyone that works with at-risk youth! I would argue mindfulness would cure most of these emotional reactions. It is important to understand your emotions and to pause and breath before reacting in a negative way does not help any situation in the long term.

Get confused with all the Acronyms in Education? Me too. So, since we are working on our WASC document I made these posters to help me and the rest of my staff remember and refer to all of the acronyms we are thrown. It is our word wall (for teachers). When in education, you are always learning and word walls are research-based and work for everybody!
