The contemporary era is marked by significant mass migration of people worldwide, leading to profound demographic shifts. These changes have had a notable impact on K-12 schools, as educators strive to teach culturally and linguistically diverse communities, as well as children who have experienced trauma. Throughout the stages of migration, including pre-migration, transit, and resettlement, individuals are exposed to traumatogenic experiences. In recent years, New York has witnessed an influx of diverse students, including Afghan evacuees, Ukrainian refugees, asylum seekers from South American, and unaccompanied minors crossing the U.S.-Mexican border. In order to effectively support teachers in New York City in their work with Multilingual Learners, this oral presentation will examine a professional learning initiative aimed at increasing teacher capacity in trauma-informed practices. The session will delve into a comprehensive review of the collected data, analyzing the reflections provided by participating teachers in the workshops. Moreover, the presentation will highlight the implications derived from this analysis, shedding light on potential avenues for further professional development workshops.

By addressing the critical intersection between trauma-informed practices and the needs of Multilingual Learners in the context of increasing migration, this research seeks to empower educators with the knowledge and skills required to create inclusive and supportive learning environments. The insights shared in this presentation have the potential to inform policy, practice, and teacher preparation programs, fostering enhanced educational experiences for all students in diverse and evolving classroom settings.
