CARING FOR SELF TO CARE FOR OTHERS: Self-Care Practices for Teachers Network
This network is sponsored by the New York State PDRC at Fordham University.
ABOUT THIS NETWORK:
By understanding ourselves and our own needs, we can more effectively navigate the complex and stressful situations that continue to arise during this challenging year. Join Suzie Marder LCSW, a gifted facilitator and thoughtful colleague, as we:
- navigate the daily uncertainty of teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- develop strategies to manage the emotional impact of enforcing Corona related policies in real time.
- investigate how to keep up our own energy and recharge with no breaks or very few breaks.
- plan for a “long winter”
- think about supporting our students
- share successes and expand our emotional toolboxes!
This network is geared to Elementary and Middle School teachers.
