Series Overview

Distance Learning. Synchronous or asynchronous or hybrid – or a combination of all three? Zoom fatigue. Always on, always accessible. Haven’t had a vacation in weeks….And so on, and so on. When ‘teaching from the distance,’ to-do lists become never-ending filled with new, competing ‘non-negotiables.’ ‘Burnout’ feels more like an inevitability than a passing idea. With all of this, it is easy to lose sight of the reasons we do this work and the inherent joy within. Join Kristen for interactive sessions to guide you through a revitalization process that examines four pillars for any educator: 1) Show up everyday – physically, mentally and emotionally. 2) Hold high standards – for yourself and your students. 3) Love your students unconditionally. 4) Know your ‘why’ for each day. Together, we will share stories, find inspiration, and identify healing practices to support the soul of every educator.
