Educators’ Confluence 2019

A Mindful Convergence of Learning, Connecting, and Rejuvenating


Montana Counselors and Educators: Are you planning to attend the MBI Summer Institute? Come to this workshop first to rejuvenate and gain valuable strategies before heading to MBI in Bozeman.

Don't miss this special event with national innovative education leaders who will transform your practice and replenish your resiliency!

Students, schools, and communities need resilient educators. Join us to grow your personal and professional resiliency. This Educators Confluence combines three themes (streams) that contribute to that resiliency: LearningConnecting, & Rejuvenating.

Dive into this refreshing experience to meet, share, and collaborate with colleagues and stream facilitators. You and your colleagues will gain a deep understanding of cross-cutting topics driving today’s most innovative practices.

Why should I attend?

Because you are a PK-12 teacher, counselor, administrator, or staff member who wants to: 

  • LEARN how to deepen your practice through critical thinking, creativity, inquiry, and literacy

  • CONNECT by strengthening, broadening, and deepening your connections to students, peers, self, and others.

  • REJUVENATE by reflecting on your practice, growing your strengths, and applying fresh ways and thinking

You can choose a theme that best meets your needs!
