  • increase their comfort level and demonstrate skills in delivering lessons on puberty topics.
  • describe ways to create a gender inclusive environment.
  • practice responding to student questions.
  • identify resources and tools available to support curriculum implementation.
  • network with other educators delivering puberty education throughout Maine. 

Who should attend?

Maine educators, school nurses, and other school staff who support and teach puberty education with youth grades 4-6. 

What is the cost?

The cost for this event is $35.00, and includes lunch during the training and a hard copy of the updated Puberty Happens curriculum.
