Educators have had an unprecedented few years. From the rapid pivot to online school to the mental health crisis that so many students are going through, you’ve had to hold space for way more than you may have signed up for or have training in. At the same time, you’ve had your own personal wellbeing, family, and life to attend to. It can feel impossible to do it all, and many educators are burnt out.
Our students cannot be well if we are not well. Teacher wellbeing has to be centered if you are going to support your students to learn and thrive. This workshop is designed to support educators and school staff to better understand how stress and trauma may be impacting them and their students (and their students’ parents). You’ll also learn strategies to address all that may be coming at you so that you can support the resilience of yourself and the school community.
This 4-session course offers a foundation in trauma-informed, resilience-focused classroom management while centering teacher wellbeing. Whether you’re a classroom teacher, administrator, school counselor, or teaching aid, these tools can be a lifeline in this time of unpredictability and intensity. Even as the external world may seem like it’s going back to “normal,” the impact of the past few years is being felt by everyone.
This workshop is geared for those working with all ages ranging, from kindergarten through college. In addition to the main 4 session lectures, you also have the option to sign up for small group coaching call for specific ages (elementary age, middle school, and high school/college).
