Teaching and Learning in Difficult Times
"I suppose that communication and collaboration with other teachers gave me oxygen to live and to think of teaching again, I see how it was necessary for me and I found out about different types of brain and how a person's behaviour changes after he/she has experienced trauma."
(English Teacher from Kyiv)
"A teacher is not supposed to cure trauma, but to make the child feel safe and teach how to cope with emotions."
(Teacher from Chernobyl)
"The key benefits are meeting colleagues who have the same problems connected to stress and fear and are ready to share how to solve them together. The main takeaways are practical techniques and strategies how to help yourself first and then create safe classroom for students and support them in difficult times."
(Teacher from Lviv)
