Society depends on educators to be a positive guiding force in our children’s lives – often playing simultaneous roles as educator, parent, counselor, and caring friend. For educators to fulfill these vital roles, we need to develop resilience both inside and outside the classroom by supporting their mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
What are some strategies you can use to do that?
Join the School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project on June 1, 2021 from 16:30 – 17:30 PT for “Modelling Well-being as Educators”.
This one-hour webinar will focus on practices of sustainable well-being for educators, including increasing knowledge of physical activity and how it supports mental well-being, and prioritizing mindfulness and self-compassion as a way of awakening our own well-being to be present for the work of showing up for our students.
