There are everyday stressors such challenges of day-to-day living and those stressors that encompass both predictable and unpredictable challenges. Those stressors could range from caring for a child or commuting, as well as unexpected events, such as a malfunctioning home appliance, a sudden work deadline., or the stress of going to the grocery store and unable to find items on the shelf. In education, we are experiencing significant changes with our need to learn new technology as well as the responsibility of creating new learning environments for our students and experiencing the frustrations of those new learning environments. Overall, we are all experiencing exceptional life events.
In education, we band together, support each other, and move forward despite the challenges. The Resiliency Conference is a special day to acknowledge the capacity of educators to be resilient and to have a day to expand upon your knowledge with wonderful strategies to build resilience in yourself as well as your students. The conference will begin with our phenomenal Keynote William "Bill" Herman and Plenary presenter Debbie Silver will focus on the power of positive actions. The presenters will share individual and environmental approaches to overcome difficulties, which will make a difference in your life and the lives of your students.
