Tuesday, August 16 - K-12 Teachers and Paraprofessionals - Teacher Wellness in a Stressful World - Resiliency Strategies that Contribute to the Health of Classrooms - Presented by Stacy York
 

The current state of the education system has become a stressful, complex career path. Now, more than any time in the history of education, teachers need a deep understanding of their own stress response system, how they are wired to cope, and a toolbox filled with strategies that are effective, useful, and focus on being resilient.

We spend hours discussing education plans for students; the goal of this training is to provide educators with a space to plan to do this for themselves.   

The first half of this full day class will lead participants through a series of reflections and activities designed to assist with creating his/her own individualized wellness plan that can be utilized throughout the school year.  The second half of this full day will allow educators to think about their students and their classroom. They will develop a plan of how to create stress response strategies at the beginning of the school year that can be utilized with students in classrooms. 

Educators will: 

* learn about their own brain development  

* reflect on key events from their lives that impact wellness 

* create an individual daily wellness plan to manage stress 

* identify key strategies that can be useful in the classroom to start off the year with
