I’m glad you’re here. My name is Jen Alexander. As an experienced educator, trauma expert, author, and professional development facilitator, I believe that trauma-sensitive educators can make a positive difference in the lives of students, one relationship at a time. That’s why I’m a passionate leader in the movement to build trauma-sensitive schools. Known by children and adults alike as “Ms. Jen,” I love helping kids—and giving others what they need to help kids, too. Whether you’re an educator or community member who is committed to supporting all youth, I invite you to learn with me. Together, we can build supportive learning environments that help everyone feel safe, be connected, get regulated, and learn.
