Professional Development For Educators

REBOOT for Frontline Warriors

Summer Professional Development

Educators today are facing unprecedented challenges. To be happy and successful, educators need to focus on self-care. Self-care means spending time on yourself to refresh, to become physically and mentally healthy so you can enjoy your work, help and care for others, and accomplish all the things you need to do every day.

When we regularly take care of ourselves, we improve our health outcomes, i.e. reduce stress, improve immune system, increase productivity, and achieve higher self-esteem. A happier, healthier you will flow into those around you.

Each course is available On-Demand. Participation is voluntary.
