Providing compassion and understanding for students who are escalated and in crisis

Woman & child wearing PPE. Fact: Physical distancing is not an option when working with vulnerable students

Education workers on the front line respond to students who are escalated and in crisis. We are often hit, bit, kicked, pushed, punched and spit on.  Some education workers experience this on a daily basis; yet we continue to show up every day providing compassion, respect, and understanding for the students we support.

I am proud to say that I’m an education worker.
