  • Teachers will recognize the need for self care, and understand the importance of prioritizing self-care, personally and professionally
  • Teachers will develop a self-preserving mindset
  • Teachers will recognize the impact self care and preservation have on themselves, PLCs, and their classrooms
  • Teachers will explore research, and create a personalized self care plan
  • Teachers will commit to implementing 1 self care strategy for themselves, 1 to share with their PLC, and 1 to implement with students

"You cannot pour from an empty cup." As educators we often put ourselves "on the backburner" thinking that by putting our students first, we are doing what is best for them. What we don’t realize is that when we prioritize our selves, our students and colleagues stand to benefit. Join us as we explore the benefits of self care, igniting a renewal both personally and professionally. Exercise your passion, rediscover you joy, and reconnect with your peace! A happy teacher = a happy class!

Modalities/Implementation Practices:
  • Model self care strategies
  • Offer personalized learning options
  • Allow teachers to formulate plans for self care through discourse
