Brief Program Description

As an educator, your health and well-being are the keys to a productive and joyous classroom. If you are like most educators/change agents, however, your students come first and you come second or not at all. Therefore, this interactive workshop will take a critically reflective look at who we are as educators and educational leaders and how we show up in our work to serve some of our most underserved students. We will examine some deeply held beliefs about who we are in relation of the work we do and will explore practical strategies for fostering mindfulness, self-care, and wellness in our own lives and the lives of those we serve daily.
