Short Videos

Woman Studying

Work days are busy and don't leave much time for professional development!  But, taking a few minutes to re-charge and learn from others can give new energy and perspective to our work.  


Take a few minutes to watch  a short video of strategies that support youth mental health, emotions, and behaviors. We link to different videos throughout the year.  We are currently highlighting a series of videos by Edutopia
