“I am so thankful to work alongside Ellen. She has an unwavering commitment to creating a stronger community, illustrated through her work in advocacy, outreach, and education. Ellen’s positive and upbeat energy provides strong motivation for teams she works with.  As a teacher, what I appreciate most in attending any workshop is hearing from someone who has walked in my shoes, and Ellen has. She does a great job integrating real-life examples and research based practices into her discussions to engage her audience. After hearing her speak, I have both the knowledge and inspiration to reflect on and improve my actions as a teacher.  I strongly recommend collaborating with Ellen to school staffs and anyone connected with children and young adults who have experienced trauma.” L. Stana, Rockingham County Public Schools

Depoy, General Education Teacher, Rockingham County Public Schools

“I have been an educator in Rockingham County Schools for 11 years.  During those 11 years I have had many challenging students.  These students come from very diverse backgrounds and have many different needs and ways to cope with the challenges they face. In working with Ellen S. Wright I was given the experience on how to meet each of these challenges.  She has an outstanding resume and background especially working with students that come from a traumatic background. Ms. Wright is able to take her knowledge and present to your staff along with providing meaningful tools on how to be service these children within the classroom. Ms. Wright has many resources to share as well as situational advice pertinent to educators.  I would highly recommend her traumatic services professional development workshop to any staff within an education setting.  Please consider inviting Ms. Wright into your building allowing her the time to impart her knowledge of challenging students and her tools of meeting their needs to be successful within a classroom.” C.
