5 Important Resilience Boosters for Educators During a Pandemic
How can we find resilience during difficult times?
Teachers, administrators, and youth service professionals alike face a vastly different reality in today’s classrooms and communities than most were prepared for while earning their credentials. Stress, anxiety, depression, and other emotional trauma is having a big impact on many educators during the challenges of this pandemic. Add to that socioeconomic challenges at home and COVID-19 numbers climbing to new highs, we are entering the holidays with the reality that the end to this pandemic and any hope for returning to normal is still far away! The need for practical tools to boost our resilience has never been higher. In this webinar we will be sharing 5 practical strategies that educators can follow to access the incredible resilience that is within them and find ways to not only cope, but to thrive during these difficult and unprecedented times.
