Session B2: Caring for Ourselves as Educators – Reconnecting to Joy and Purpose, Friday, July 9, 2021
Presenter: Jacky Howell, Azpire LLC


Session Description: Over this past year and longer now our work with children, families and each other has been particularly challenging, both emotionally and physically. The pandemic altered the rules of engagement and teaching and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. We as educators care for others, yet as Dr. Becky Bailey says, “We cannot offer to others what we don’t possess for ourselves.” Self-care during this time of multiple stressors can be rooted in reconnecting to the joy of this work and our purpose. This interactive session will offer not only ideas, but opportunities to connect with those joyful moments with each other that celebrate us and this amazing profession. Resources will also be provided! Ten different strategies will be shared related to self-care, joy and purpose. Participants will have opportunities to add ideas in chat or voice to uplift others. Resources for self-care will also be provided.
