Walking a student through a traumatic situation can be a daunting, overwhelming task, especially for new teachers, ASCD interim CEO Ronn Nozoe said during ASCD Empower19, as Nozoe recalled a time when he was a novice teacher helping a student who was being abused. Do not let lack of experience keep you from supporting them, Nozoe advised, saying, “You don’t have to be super person. Be you.”
