Practicing Self-Care through Mindfulness for Educators
The shift to distance learning has taught us that in order to thrive, teachers need to focus on how connected we are to our own needs and emotions. In this session, we will utilize reflection as a mindful practice to powerfully reclaim our time and energy both in and out of the classroom and develop a critical awareness of our emotions. Armed with this knowledge, we will identify tools to help manage our emotional world and identify practices that allow teachers to take care of themselves during these challenging times.
