Each June hundreds of educators from across the country make the journey to the Teacher Self-Care Conference that inspires their practice and rejuvenates their hearts. They leave with strong strategies and best practices for taking care of themselves in the midst of the whirlwind that teaching has become. Join us to find new teaching friends, new connections with education luminaries, and enough self-care strategies to harmonize their year.
In 2019, the Teacher Self-Care Annual Conference is scheduled for June 21-22, 2019! This year our theme is, "The Spirit of a Teacher" where we’ll be hearing from groundbreaking speakers, cutting-edge workshops, and seminars that address what teachers need.  Before signing up for your session, please purchase your tickets.

When Your Heart Says No, But Your District Says So

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Being mandated to do something that goes against your beliefs and mission is terribly hard to reconcile, yet commonplace in our schools and districts. On one hand, you understand why the rules and directives exist, yet you struggle with the impact of certain decisions that seem/ counter to everything you aim to do. How do you do follow directions and sleep at night? In this workshop, participants will learn how to 1) identify and avoid energy traps that keep you stuck and fuming; and 2) unpacking and utilizing proactive coping methods to utilize in these situations and many more. We will prioritize depth over breadth, and cover strategies that participants can implement immediately for their professional well-being and those they lead & serve. Sessions are engaging with talking prompts, hands-on activities, and role-play scenarios. Participants will connect closely with their deep purpose and mission in work, and how to create a safe space to honor it and other responsibilities.
