"How toxic stress impacts Learning and Achievement."

Learn about ACEs Adverse Childhood Experience Study.

The Presenter is Godwin Higa, retired Principal, and professor at Alliant University, San Diego. Sucessful Trauma Informed consultant in Hawaii. And the principal of the first Trauma-informed Responsive and Restorative Justice Practices School in the San Diego Unified School District.

Mr. Higa taught grades 3-6 for ten years, was a Principal for 20 years at Elementary and Secondary schools, and was named District Teacher of the Year.

Mr. Higa is a nationally-recognized expert in supporting the mental health and wellness of students. As Principal at Cherokee Point Elementary -- and as a consultant for the Hawaii Department of Education -- he was instrumental in providing training for all adults and resulting in all adults leading with compassion. He also lowered and eliminated the suspensions while raising academic achievement at his school and in Hawaii.
