The Resourced Teacher series is about offering ready-to-implement tools to feel fully nourished and show up every day for our important work and purpose. As teachers, we spend so much time caring for others and other people’s children. Learning how to care for ourselves, how to make time without feeling guilty, and also what to do during that time is essential. We will learn and practice tools that you can use for yourself, as well as in your classroom. Learning how to regulate ourselves is just as important as learning how to spot disregulation due to trauma and empowering our students to do the same. These sessions will combine learning and discussing in front of the screen with movement and mindfulness practices. You will also be asked to keep a journal during this program, about 5-10 minutes every day.
