Berry Street Education Model
During 2016-2017, educators at Holy Family engaged with 5 days engaging professional development focusing on theBerry Street Education Model.
This model continues to influence our pedagogy here at Holy Family.
“The Berry Street Education Model provides schools with the training, curriculum and strategies to engage even the most challenging students. This education initiative is different because it is based on proven positive education, trauma-informed and wellbeing practices that enable students’ academic and personal growth.
