School violence is a significant threat to education!

School shootings in 2020-21 soared to the highest number in two decades. The erosion of physical safety and emotional security creates ten different types of violence, requiring comprehensive prevention.

TeacherCoach can help!

Invest in violence prevention so you don’t have to invest in intervention. Your dedicated portal will have virtual engagements in these three areas.
  • SELF
    Appreciating our own aggressive impulses is the foundation for new learning. As educators understand the causes or etiology of violence, they more easily develop a paradigm for intervention.
  • STUDENT
    Differentiating healthy vs. unhealthy aggression and the evolution of conflict into constructive differencing are two of the PSEL skills sets required to reduce the potential for violence with students..
  • SCHOOL
    Scaling nurturing classroom climate and school culture requires appreciation of group dynamics. Faculty who can balance process and content contribute to the health of the organization.

Success Stories

Allen Pratt

"Whole School Health Through Psychosocial Emotional Learning highlights the importance of relationships, communication, and compassion for others. It presents a critical view in supporting, training, and retaining teachers through the lens of engaging and modeling behaviors that will help our rural students be better civic leaders and community members. My favorite quote from the book gives credit to the author's upbringing and modeling from his parents: 'We must experience the world through others so we can fully engage in educating all children. My father and mother modeled to me and my siblings how to experience the world through somebody else’s eyes, especially if their outer differences stirred up discomfort or displeasure, enriching all lives involved.' I recommend all leaders, teachers, and stakeholders secure their copy as they prepare for school."
