All the new demands and challenges of our world today can make our heads spin and our hearts race. It seems impossible to actually find time to take care of ourselves. And yet, research shows that when we take care of ourselves first, we are actually more helpful to our students and own families. Now more than ever, supporting students’ social-emotional wellbeing and academic success starts with us. In this interactive webinar series, you will learn self-care strategies that you can use at home and during your school day. Discover what research says about the positive impact teacher self-care, self-compassion, and stress reduction has on student learning. Learn strategies that you can readily implement to improve self-care and resilience in yourself and your students whether you are navigating online instruction, homeschooling, or when you return to your classroom.
