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.

Becoming a Culturally Responsive Educator

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

This session will discuss how to increase global awareness and culturally responsive teaching in a primary classroom. Culturally responsive pedagogy can have an impact on learning and the brain’s executive functioning. We will discuss how as educators we can be an advocate for ALL students and how that is an important part of being culturally responsive. Finally, we’ll discuss how I incorporate global awareness through S.O.L.E. (Student Organized Learning Environments) and S.T.E.A.M. Centers.
