Looking for a chance to grow and renew your energy as an educator? Join us for a day of collegial connections and inspired conversation this summer...

Our true impact as educators stems from a teaching presence that embraces the common humanity and vulnerability in ourselves and in our students. The impact of world events, incidents of school violence, and the pace of modern life can disrupt our best efforts to balance priorities in our personal and professional lives, and the critical self-care routines necessary to bring our full selves to teaching.

As educators, we are working hard to revitalize content in the digital age, engage all kinds of learners, and shore up our collective resilience even as we face a rising tide of anxiety and pressure for students and colleagues alike. Mindfulness practices offer an accessible long-term strategy to help us stay present in the classroom and as leaders. Emerging educational psychology helps us understand the ways our students "co-regulate," feel safe, and become ready to learn based on our own energy and presence as educators.

This summer, we invite new and former TIME workshop participants to join us for a day of valuable self-care practices designed to strengthen how we show up and be fully present for ourselves and our students in our work.
