Traumatic events affect the learning process for all children, but children of color face even more obstacles. On Thursday, June 11, at 3 p.m., NJSBA’s Ray Pinney is scheduled to interview Dr. Melissa Sadin, author of a series of books on coping with trauma, and coauthor, with Nathan Levy, of “Teachers’ Guide to Trauma: 20 Things Kids with Trauma Wish Their Teachers Knew.”

Dr. Sadin will discuss the impact of the pandemic on children of color who live in disadvantaged neighborhoods. To participate in the podcast, or to listen to a recording after the event occurs, go to podcast programs.
