“We really look forward to hosting these workshops each summer, providing an opportunity for teachers to share the exciting things they are doing in their classrooms with others,” said Dr. Marilyn Meell, Director of Graduate Education.

2019 SIW ScheduleNew to the Summer Institute Workshops this year is a unique Trauma and Resilience Series led by Theresa Fry, who has over 20 years of experience in high school and middle school education and counseling and is a STARR global trainer.

Participants who attend all three parts of the series will obtain the Trauma Practitioner Certification for education.
