This year, October 10 is World Mental Healthy Day, a day to raise awareness about mental health issues around the world and find solutions to the rising needs in this area. In many communities, mental health is still seen as a symptom of personal failure or something that shouldn’t be discussed outside of the family.
In my work supporting schools and districts with SEL implementation, I have seen firsthand the importance of intentionally integrating educator wellbeing in any SEL initiative. The work of teaching and being in the classroom is exhausting, messy, and stressful, and educators need to feel supported in order to do their best work.
The challenge is that many schools don’t know how to grow educator SEL capacity in ways that are authentic and respectful of the adults as learners, or they miss to consider the social and emotional conditions that make the teaching profession harder than it needs to be.
At the same time, we have certain misconceptions about how adults can develop their social and emotional capacity that can get in the way of engaging in this process. For starters, moving away from our emotions will not make things better.
I am excited to share that I will be hosting a FREE webinar to discuss these misconceptions and explore practical ways to integrate SEL in the life of educators, so they can reclaim more peace and joy in their lives. This virtual event will take place on November 2 at 3:30 PST/6:30 EST.
If you are a teacher, you will gain new insights to support yourself and redefine your purpose. If you are a leader supporting teachers, you will discover new ways to effectively support your people.
Bring a friend, share with other educators at your school and join me for an informative session.
If you attend the live webinar, you’ll enter a chance to enjoy a free coaching session. More details to claim this offer during the webinar!
