Being an educator in a 21st Century school is no easy task. It is critical to take care of ourselves, so we can better take care of our students. Participants in this workshop will experience renewal and rejuvenation by developing a sustainable self-care routine. While having the opportunity to examine different approaches and identifying strengths and weaknesses, this workshop will provide participants with the tools and in-depth knowledge needed to become the best version of themselves.
Attendees must participate in all 5 two-hour webinar sessions. PDP/CEU forms must be completed after the 5th session. PDP/CEU forms are available on the page of the 5th session. You will receive your certificates at the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
