Fellow educators!!! You give so much to your schools all year - it’s time to give to yourself!
Where did the time go??
The end of every school year and the beginning of the next are busy times. It’s easy to get caught up in that whirlwind and before you know it one school year dissolves into the next. Few educators, myself included, carve out time to reflect on their school year and give themselves a chance to figure out what worked and what didn’t. We focus on student growth but rarely do we take the time to look critically at our own growth and accomplishments. By the time we say goodbye to our students we’re ready to collapse.
What if this year was different?
What if you gave yourself the time and space to:
determine what you did and how you showed up in ways that positively impacted your year so that you can continue to build on that success
reflect on what held you back or kept you from reaching your goals so you can choose a different path next year
build your confidence by recognizing all the ways you contribute to your school community
foster deeper connections with your colleagues
expand your support network by connecting with other educators who are committed to the same introspection and growth
take care of yourself so that you have a greater capacity to give back and have more stamina to combat the stresses of school life
This course IS that time and space. During this empowering two-part series, first we’ll come together in June so you can do some game-changing reflection. Then we’ll come back together in August and you’ll have a unique opportunity to create a personal game plan that will help you set the tone for the new school year.
Your registration gets you access to:
Reflect - 12 activities to encourage reflection at the end of the school year
Reset - 15 activities to help you create a vision and game plan for the new school year
- Video, audio, writing activities, a Reflect and Reset e-workbook, and a slidecast
- NEW this year - we'll have two virtual meet ups so we can build connections within this supportive online community
Is this for me?
Are you a teacher? YES! This is for YOU!
Are you a coach or teacher leader? YES! This is for YOU!
Are you an administrator or director? YES! This is for YOU!
This course is NOT about curriculum, lesson plans, or resources for students. This course IS about you and your own empowerment in whatever context in education that you work in. This course is NOT about leadership of others. This course IS about leadership of self. This is a personal PD.
This is about recognizing your strengths, taking action where you discover room to grow, and caring for yourself so that you have the stamina that the work of education demands.
We cannot give what we do not have. Take this opportunity to give to yourself so that you can be the most empowered, confident educator you can be. Your students and your school community deserve that and most of all, so do you!
The future of the world is in your school - let’s get ready for them!
When does the class begin? Part 1, Reflect, starts Monday, June 1, 2020!
I missed the start date. Can I still join? Yes! Register now and complete the course activities when you can. I think there's a benefit to participating when other classmates are participating because there will be fun opportunities to engage and connect with others, but you can do the course activities at your own pace once they are released.
If June is so busy for teachers, why start the class now? A couple reasons - 1) there will be an opportunity to connect with your colleagues, which would be harder to do once school it out; 2) you will likely get some ideas you can use with your students to reflect on the school year (win, win); 3) if you're like me, the likelihood of actually reflecting and thinking about school once summer break has started is low...real low.
What's the time commitment? I tried to keep the insane busyness of June in mind when I created the activities, so you can expect to spend anywhere from 10 - 20 minutes on each one.
