ROCHESTER, Minn. - 380 educators, counselors, social workers, and administrators from Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin gathered at the Mayo Civic Center for the 2-day Trauma-Informed Education Institute Thursday and Friday.

Jim Parry presented at the conference. He leads Stewartville Public Schools' REACH (Relationships, Education, Accountability, Character, Hard work) Program. He shared his insight on how he works with his students who have adverse childhood experiences with other educators. "Being trauma informed is not a temporary fix. So if we're working with a student that has had 15 years of chaos in their lives, we're not going to be able to take that away in 1 semester. Biggest thing that schools need to be aware of is that they need to have patience, they have to think long term," he says.

This is the second year of the institute.
