NCS3 and NEA Partner to Equip Teachers to Support Students Exposed to Trauma

A recent Op-Ed by Illinois teacher Gina Caneva eloquently expresses what NCS3 faculty have heard from teachers across the country: “Coping with students’ trauma should be a top priority in our professional development.” That is why NCS3 is so pleased to have worked with the National Education Association (NEA) to review and endorse two newly-created micro-credentials. Micro-credentials are competency-based recognitions, “created by educators, for educators.” They are free for NEA members and cost $75 for non-members. The newly released modules make professional development accessible to all educators, including those who may not have these resources available in their own community or district. Now, more than ever, equipping teachers to deepen their knowledge in the areas of Diversity, Equity, and Cultural Competence and Trauma-Informed Pedagogy is an urgent need.
