Why Is Trauma & Resilience Training Important?

Even if your school or district is not currently using trauma-informed strategies, you've likely seen the research of how such approaches are positively impacting the lives of students, teachers, and administrators across the country. Resiliency, in particular, is important for everyone—students are more likely to posses it if they are taught by teachers who display it, and teachers are more resilient if empowered by knowledgable administrators. Being equipped with the right tools and strategies will help teachers build resilience in light of the secondary trauma they are experiencing in their classrooms every day.

Why SHARE?

Our name is a statement of purpose: We are the Source for Help, Advancement, and Renewal for Educators. There is no one-size-fits all solution to teacher burnout, but the most sturdy support for those in need comes from fellow educators—both those in one’s local educational community and in the profession at large.

While help may be right next door, sometimes it's not easy to find the words to ask for it. Sometimes we don’t hear each other’s struggle. Some have been asking for help or offering it for years, but their voices have gone unheard. We can get consumed in the details of a day, which passes without any meaningful conversation or self-reflection. Day after day, frustrations and feelings of helplessness mount until they become overwhelming.

These are human-sized challenges, and their solutions lie in creating stronger human connections. Technology cannot solve this, so rather than thinking of SHARE as a solution in itself, we think of our courses as a catalyst for conversation and growth in local learning communities. By creating intuitive coursework filled with practical guidance and resources from teachers, experts, and designers with different perspectives, we aim to inspire and equip teachers to share their own perspectives, because learning is, fundamentally, sharing. We’re here to help start the conversation.
