Season 3, Episode 9: Welcome Back to Hybrid Learning with Our School Psychologists

Week nine of the 2020-2021 school year will present the next in a line of challenges thrown in front our students since March 2020 - the return to our EHS school building for the beginning of hybrid learning. While some students will seamlessly transition back this setup, others may struggle with different worries and adjustments. On this episode, we talk to our school psychologists Mrs. Stephanie Cignarella and Dr. Trevor Pinho about those feelings and when to take action on them. 

Topics covered include:

  • How Mrs. Cignarella’s 9th Grade Experience shaped how she views her work today
  • The message behind Unity Day and Anti-Bullying
  • Mental health issues regarding the beginning of the hybrid schedule and effects of the pandemic
  • When anxiety turns from normal to something requiring adult help
  • To know it is OK to not be OK
  • How to navigate and maintain social connections
  • Tips for social connection for students staying 100 percent remote
  • Strategies on goal setting, controlling the controllables, and the importance of routines
