About the Presentation 

Concrete and practical strategies for creating safe and welcoming environments by bringing relationship to the center of our teaching

As Educators, we all know that students need to feel safe in order to learn. For our students, safety was always a priority and now safety has taken on a greater emphasis. Join us in a conversation to explore how we can best prioritize and address our own needs for safety and connection, as well as those of our students and families during this challenging time. With intention, flexibility, and perseverance, we can infuse everyday social-emotional learning into our curriculum and help foster our students’ ability to connect, cope, and succeed. Applicable to all grade levels and school personnel, this workshop will provide concrete and practical strategies for creating safe and welcoming environments by bringing the power of relationship to the center of our teaching. We will also discuss ways we can support our own and our colleagues’ well-being as we transition back to school. Whether we are gathering in our school buildings or meeting remotely, our students need us and we need one another. #inthistogether.
