We recognize educators are interacting with suffering as they shape and guide their students who have experienced trauma. The students bring their stories with them every day which can have a real effect (vicarious trauma). The levels of stress are exasperated as a result of the system issues, challenges, and effects due to Covid-19 and social injustice. There is real grief caused by the continuing pandemic when we had hoped to have a return to a more typical year.
