This workshop will lead participants beyond black and white diagnostic labels to understand the developmental ecologies of themselves and their students in meaningful, memorable, and measurable ways.
You can expect a workshop designed with experiential activities to amplify personal and professional strengths, explore emotional first aid options for your students, and walk through approaches that help regulate personal emotional reactions. In addition to developing effective skills that build personal resilience, you’ll leave feeling rejuvenated!
Resilient Educators II
For teachers, staff, and school administrators who have participated in one or more similar Brightways Learning offerings
This workshop will take what you learned in Resilient Educators I to the next level!
Research shows there’s a correlation between the school’s support for their educators and the job performance and satisfaction of their educators. This workshop will advance educator resiliency, personally and professionally.
You will reflect on your own Web of Support inside and outside of school, and you will discover the dynamic balancing act between those two Webs.
You will be introduced to—and participate in—the Teacher Support Card, a survey of your developmental ecology as an educator. It’s like “the other side of your evaluation.”
You will walk away seeing your own strengths and with strategies for growing your own Web of Support.
