Cherokee Point Elementary School is featured in a new video from The California Endowment. This San Diego school has incorporated trauma-sensitive principles into their daily operations, with dramatic results. “Understanding the whole child, where they are coming from, how we treat students with respect, is a trauma-informed philosophy. It’s about relating to the students and, really, opening your heart” says principal Godwin Higa.
