EDUCATOR CARE & WELLNESS beyond the classroom

As a classroom teacher or support staff, you may find yourself overwhelmed and stressed

within our current education climate. This workshop will attempt to address the mental health

concern, our stress, observing, and checking in, to know oneself. Once we acquire a handle on

one’s stress, possibility will seemingly come about, allowing for opportunity to thrive as a

“buoyant educator”. During our lively time together, we will explore the possibilities and facts,

ways of guarding against conditions of Burnout. We will investigate Practices of Self Care, ways

to restore energies, thought absent or depleted. Participants will move away from the

workshop experience, hopefully with revisioning, a healthier approach of their craft within

one’s teaching practice.
