Come join us for a day of thinking partnership and mutual support for the challenges facing us. We’ll focus on immediate applications – strategies that work right now and in the future.

Themes: “Real” resilience – that continuing impulse to engage and learn, “real” self-care and grace that informs instruction, strategies for keeping on, and helping students keep on with mindfulness and grit.

Professional credit offered – with report of how conference ideas are implemented.
