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.

What My Amputations Have Taught Me About Cognitive Flexibility

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2016, The World Economic Forum published a list of the top 10 skills students need to have by 2020. Of these 10, two skills either moved up the list in priority or appeared for the first time: creativity and cognitive flexibility. While most teachers are familiar with the word "creativity," most are NOT familiar with the idea of "cognitive flexibility" and the relation between the two. Yet, these are skills our students need to know. If we don't teach them, who will? In this engaging TED Talk Session, learn why Cognitive Flexibility is a necessary skill for students as well as teachers through the lens of my life-altering situation.
