Entrada liberada. La actividad se realizará en inglés.

For nearly 100 years, canaries were used to detect poisonous gas in coal mines before it could hurt the miners. Canaries’ sensitivity to harmful conditions made them useful early detectors that warned of trouble by a deterioration in their own health and wellness.

Teachers may often feel like ‘the canary in the classroom.’ They are the early detectors for the health and wellbeing of their students and classrooms. While a lot of attention has been paid to the need for developing students’ social emotional learning, teachers have long been left alone to absorb and respond to students’ social emotional challenges. This takes a toll on a teachers’ wellness and serves as a reminder that the social emotional development of teachers is equally
important.

This talk will present preliminary findings from in depth qualitative interviews with teachers from New York City PreK teachers at 18 Early Education Centers enrolled in a universal program. It is grounded in Dr. Rodriguez’s work in the teaching brain and five awarenesses of expert teaching.
