Many students enter classrooms every day bearing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) that affect their learning, their future health and their ability to succeed in the short and long term. Creating Compassionate Classrooms provides teachers with an understanding of how teachers can help students can overcome adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) by adopting compassionate methodologies in the classroom and learning community.
During the 2016-2017 school year, 104,088 students were reported homeless in New York City alone. While this is just one example of a traumatic event students may face throughout their school year, this is a substantial number of students for whom traditional discipline and management routines will fail. These students, along with others, require a school culture that is built upon compassion, while identifying and supporting their needs and build them a bridge to success.
