Creating Resilience in Schools, May 10 or May 15
Healthy educators are our most valuable resource for creating safe and supportive learning environments.

It will outline some key contributors to stress and burnout in school environments and identify action items for developing resilient schools.

Racial Justice in the Classroom, May 19
Talking about racial justice in public education — constructively, honestly, openly — is difficult. Join this Early Career Educators racial/social justice webinar on how we can challenge and dismantle the structures, policies and implicit biases we all have that prop up white privilege at the expense of students and families of color. To do anything less is to deny the world in which our students live, and to concede that some students deserve less.
- Wed., May 19, 4-5:30 p.m. PT; register here.
