What participants have shared...

"I've gained awareness of my own reactions to kids’ behavior and other situations…"

"I've begun reflecting on daily element change, and now understand that a child’s behavior is not about me."

"I've learned about Nervous system symptoms and regulation and how to focus on my own regulation."

 “I now feel more confident to go into this   school year, regardless if we are in person,   on-line or a hybrid model, with a skill set   and strategies to support all of my   students while building and nurturing   those extremely important positive   relationships.”

On-line video series created when schools shut down in 2019. The purpose of these was to support educators in regulating themselves as they faced the overnight shift to virtual education for themselves, their students and their own families. This is an introductory class, as it assumes that educators already had established classrooms that transitioned to on-line learning.

Supporting the development of self-regulation skills as a key focus.

Whether you will be teaching on-line, face to face, or both, this program will help you make deep connections with your students amidst the current climate of anxiety, fear and confusion. This in-depth program, explores how to create safety,

and a sense of belonging, even with students you may be meeting for the first time.


Our goal is to empower educators to feel confident about building a thriving classroom community, in spite of any constraints put upon you, or obstacles in front of you.





 “This helped me think about how to build   relationships and mange classes in virtual   settings with students one-one-one and with   larger groups of students.

4 - Connecting to Myself So I Can

Stay Connected With My Students


 “I learned how to help an individual, or   entire class regulate using different   strategies.”

 “When using the strategies that Judy   teaches in this course, we can really   support students' social-emotional   learning and attitude towards   themselves and school.  I highly   recommend this course, whether   you are brand new or a veteran.   This course will give you tools and   insight on how to better support   students both in the classroom and   virtually.”
