Today I’m talking with Dr. Nefertiti Poyner of the Devereaux Center for Resilient Children, and I’m going to tell you right now, she is an absolute delight. Educators and the children they love and teach are being stretched in every direction. Dr. Poyner shares some of the principles that create the “ordinary magic” that helps us all to bounce back. She shares a fantastic script for building resilience and relationships in the midst of all the frustration that children are feeling as they navigate new restrictions in the classroom and helps us all to remember how to “live today well.”
