Session overview

Thriving? Feeling like your best self in the work you are doing with students? In your collaboration with colleagues? Sometimes in our commitment to be responsible, nurturing, effective champions of our students we neglect to ensure we ourselves obtain the care and support necessary to sustain health and vitality. In this session, we review compelling science and practical recommendations about taking time to care for ourselves and our colleagues. This is part of a learning series intended to help you reset and restore your own sense of wellness, and to help inform the way districts and schools promote cultures of care that benefit staff and partners.  Multi-modal resources are provided to support your integration of effective self-care practices.
