Featured Speakers:
Ian Hockley, Executive Director & Wingman Trainer, Dylan’s Wings of Change, Canton, CT; Justin McGlamery, Wingman, Dylan’s Wings of Change, Hartford, CT

Students come to us with their own emotions, triggers, and trauma. When students see respect, empathy, and kindness modeled, they are more likely to respond in similar ways; but it is not enough to just model social and emotional skills, these must be strategically and continually taught. Join us for tools and resources to support our students through kindness, empathy, and SEL learning.
