My ACE score -- Stacy.bressette (talk) 22:16, 26 April 2020 (EDT)
My ACE score is 6, which is not a big surprise to me. I teach mainly supplemental classes rather than being in the same class with students for a long period, so I generally don't get to know much about my students' lives outside the classroom. Like many students with ACEs, my coping mechanism leaned more toward overachievement than behavioral "problems" , which I think made it easier for teachers and other adults to not see me as a traumatized student.

You make an interesting point about how different students may deal with their stress in different ways. For you instead of acting out you overachieved. This certainly would make it more difficult to identify trauma that you endured as a child, and teachers may have overlooked you because of the way you handled stress. Thanks for sharing.

My ACE score was 2 which was somewhat surprising to me. My last position was in an inner city Charter school where I worked with many students that had behavioral problems. I usually handled these problems by trying to form a positive relationship with the student and collaborated among teachers, councilors, and parents. I believe that a student with a high ACE score would have a greater chance of acting out because they may be stressed from many other aspects outside of school. They may also have triggers that cause them to act a certain way because certain actions reminds them of stress or abuse they have gone through outside of school.
