Recently Dr. Housman sat down with Education Post's Maureen Kelleher to discuss how attending to teachers' emotional well-being not only benefits teachers but is also critical for their students. They also spoke about the many big emotions this back to school year will bring and how to help both teachers and students deal with those emotions together.
One of the things teachers need to be very alert to is the fact that they and their students will be returning to school with a lot of big emotions. Until they can address that, they’re not going to be able to address what everybody is concerned about: learning loss. They have to be able to start to deal with those emotions."
