Trauma Informed Classroom

Roger L Flowers...

is an education consultant and trauma-informed classroom advocate. 

He has a very diverse background touching on industries as varied as Information Technology, and Real Estate. While still a licensed California Realtor, Roger decided to concentrate on the education consultant niche. This was something that interested him at a very early age. After all, he was born to a family of professional educators. It felt natural to pursue that path in his life and career journey. 

Currently, Roger focuses on assisting schools and teachers in raising awareness of the impact of trauma. 

Hailing from Southern California, Roger is a long-time foster parent. He also has extensive teaching experience, which led him to work with students of various levels over many years. As a parent and career educator, Roger has seen many kids struggle with trauma. Teachers might write off kids acting out as “naughty” or “hyperactive.” Still, what might appear as bad behavior could signify stress from a child dealing with trauma, danger, or abuse. 

This is why as an education consultant, Roger fights for safer classrooms for all students. He has been helping his peers in the education industry to build better classrooms for their students. 

From making classrooms safer and more comfortable to dealing with and identifying trauma, it’s all about being a caring educator. He has been instrumental in bringing innovation and empathy to other teachers, schools, and families.

The topic of trauma is often overlooked in education. Yet children and teenagers can benefit from a trauma-informed classroom environment. 

Safety is one of the fundamental prerequisites of an ideal learning environment. In other words, students should feel protected. When they do, they can flourish and seize new opportunities.

A comfortable and nurturing classroom is the best learning environment for students. Despite that, even experienced educators might fail to recognize trauma-driven behavior in kids. Some students might come from difficult backgrounds. Not all kids have the emotional confidence to express distress or deal with trauma at home. Their struggles might go unnoticed in a classroom environment. For this reason, teachers must become aware of the potential signs of trauma. Not only can educators help these kids thrive and learn: but they could also change the course of their lives. Roger approaches his vision from a parent and teacher’s standpoint. He believes in the importance of trauma-sensitive classrooms and how they can be conducive to exceptional students. 

As a trauma advocate and foster parent, Roger is an education consultant committed to spreading the word and helping students and teachers identify and cope with trauma.
