Attending this event?
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.

African American Girls Achieving Their Potential

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

According to a report by the National Black Women’s Justice Institute, African American girls are over seven times more likely than White girls to receive 1 or more out of school suspension. Based upon this data it is evident that our girls are not being equipped with the necessary tools to be successful in public schools. As educators, we must ensure that our girls are prepared for success in school and beyond. The purpose of this session is to engage educators in conversation and collaboration to support girls of color. During this session educators will engage in lessons created specifically for this demographic, followed by working collaboratively to craft gender responsive lessons. Topics will include cultivating positive relationships, motivating girls to learn, and enhancing leadership qualities in girls. Participants in this workshop will leave with ready to use lessons to strategically support the African American girls they serve.
