Together, teacher lead­ers and admin­is­tra­tors explore how cur­rent sys­tems of oppres­sion affect our stu­dents and how to strate­gi­cally, and com­pas­sion­ately, inter­rupt those through relationship-​building, policy-​making, and inten­tional prac­tice. This very prac­ti­cal work­shop allows par­tic­i­pants to engage in inter­ac­tive expe­ri­ences to build knowl­edge and skill around key ways of being, beliefs, and behav­iors to develop an inclu­sive and thriv­ing school.

Workshop Outcomes:

  • Ground in the iden­ti­ties and beliefs inform­ing your work
  • Under­stand how your lead­er­ship is con­ducive to cre­at­ing equi­table spaces
  • Exam­ine how the sys­tems, struc­tures, and poli­cies in your local con­text may hin­der equity efforts
  • Learn new strate­gies and approaches to com­pas­sion­ately inter­rupt and stop inequitable practices
  • Refine the lead­er­ship required of you to cre­ate and main­tain equi­table learn­ing spaces

Activ­i­ties Include:

  • Explo­ration of iden­ti­ties and ori­gins of beliefs
  • Inter­ro­ga­tion of exist­ing poli­cies and systems
  • Grow­ing strate­gies for build­ing rela­tion­ships with students
  • Refin­ing approaches to class­room vis­its and hir­ing practices
  • Deep­en­ing under­stand­ing of leadership
  • Observ­ing a trans­for­ma­tional, equity-​centered coach­ing conversation

ONWARD: Cul­ti­vat­ing Emo­tional Resilience in Teachers

with Janet Baird

June 16 & 17, 2020 8:30 AM3:30 PM

Reg­is­tra­tion @ 8:00 AM Con­ti­nen­tal Break­fast (8:00 AM) and Lunch Included

Hor­tonville High School, Hor­tonville, Wisconsin

About This Program:

This work­shop begins by reflect­ing on your own emo­tional resilience, then explor­ing and prac­tic­ing coach­ing strate­gies to do sim­i­lar work with oth­ers. Coaches play a crit­i­cal role in cul­ti­vat­ing an educator’s abil­ity to man­age stress and respond to adver­sity, and there­fore, coaches can medi­ate the impact of burnout, includ­ing high turnover of teach­ers. To do this, coaches need a refined and spe­cific skillset to under­stand emo­tions, know how and where to inter­vene in an emo­tional cycle, and build the capac­ity of another to man­age their emo­tional experiences.

Participants Will:

  • Employ var­i­ous approaches to respond to and man­age the emo­tions of self and others
  • Under­stand the cycle of an emo­tion and the great­est points of inter­ven­tion to build resilience
  • Know how to build the habits of a resilient edu­ca­tor and under­stand the dis­po­si­tions that are strength­ened by doing so
  • Iden­tify moments where resilience can be cul­ti­vated and use a range of strate­gies to do so
  • Con­nect efforts to build resilience in adults to the task of cre­at­ing equi­table schools and trans­form­ing the expe­ri­ences of children

About our Presenter:

Janet has been in edu­ca­tion for over 20 years, teach­ing, coach­ing, and design­ing and facil­i­tat­ing pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment. She is a cer­ti­fied coach in the Art of Coach­ing and has been a cer­ti­fied yoga instruc­tor for the past 15 years. Ment’s work focuses on devel­op­ing the con­tent for the Onward web­site and facil­i­tat­ing the Onward workshops.
