September Teachers of Tomorrow (TOT) Meeting Re-Cap
Dr. Katherine Trela and Crisis Intervention Strategies
Dr. Katherine Trela, Education Department professor presented on the topic of Crisis Intervention Strategies to a September 29, 2016 meeting of Teachers of Tomorrow (TOT).
Dr. Trela "presented many informative methods to prevent, defuse, and de-escalate difficult situations that we may encounter as teachers in the future. Through resourceful handouts and a highly interactive lecture, teacher candidates learned new skills 'to better prepare themselves for an ever-changing profession' and 'achieve a greater understanding of the education world', as stated in our mission statement.
This event had the highest attendance for a lecture hosted by Teachers of Tomorrow in the past three years, with 33 teacher candidates! In addition, several students mentioned that this event exceeded their expectations. We look forward to more productive meetings in the months ahead!
