The DCRC Summary
Here’s what DCRC Director Susan Damico had to say…
“In summary, multilevel modeling revealed that students whose teachers received social-emotional feedback (classroom summaries and strategy packets) showed significantly greater social-emotional gains (across multiple domains) over the school year compared to students whose teachers did not receive feedback. Our findings suggest that having teachers complete social-emotional assessments of their students at the beginning of the school year and providing teachers with data-based feedback may build teachers’ capacity to promote social-emotional development for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.”

DCRC at the NHSA Virtual Conference 2021
Just a few weeks ago, our own Nefertiti Poyner opened the National Head Start Association Virtual Conference of 2021. Our team was so thrilled about this opportunity (and still are!) for our phenomenal colleague. During her opening keynote, Nefertiti reminded attendees that although we are in tough times, we can be tougher. She shared ways in which all of us can increase our resilience and well-being.
