One of the challenges educators face is sustaining passion and energy for their jobs.
The daily demands of supporting students and managing work and personal responsibilities throughout the school year is exhausting. However, one of the key components to being an impactful and successful teacher is staying connected to our passion.
Mindfulness can help teachers stay true to their vision for this work as well as help meet daily challenges skillfully.
This workshop offers practical and meaningful activities and resources to help you reconnect to why you became a teacher in the first place. You’ll learn how to stay grounded during challenging moments. And most importantly you’ll learn how to engage children in ways that encourage everyone to thrive.
