- Virtual Resiliency Conference
Wow-what a year!! The global pandemic, social change, AND the snowpocalypse. We also can not ignore the everyday stressors of day-to-day living. We have survived an unbelievable year. 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. Most importantly, your wellness matters.
The Resiliency Conference is an opportunity to expand upon your knowledge with magnificent strategies to continue building resilience in yourself. The conference will begin with our phenomenal Keynote Ben Nemtin and powerful plenary presenter Principal Kafele. Both presenters will focus on the power of positive actions to bounce back and become even more resilient. Come and enjoy the great breakout sessions that will focus on practical self-care and self-compassion strategies to enhance your daily practices, as well as support your well-being.
The second day (separate registration) is for administrators to hear from other administrators on how they creatively and intentionally created a multitiered system of support for educators' wellness on their campuses or in their district.
WHEN EDUCATORS ARE WELL… STUDENTS WILL BE WELL, and students will learn from our actions.
