Take a look back at some of the experiences our students had the past two weeks! http://bit.ly/VBWeekInReview11 #VBexperience #VB1Team
Our goal is to create a positive #VBexperience and empower not only our students, but our staff as well! This year, we created a program that provided teachers with an opportunity to individualize their professional learning. On Monday and Tuesday of this week, 17 staff members chose to participate in a workshop on Trauma Informed Classrooms. The training was even led by two VB staff members, Cheri May and Mariah Hohman, as well as Chelsea Bodnarik from the Hancock County ESC. #VB1Team
