[What To Do] With Polarization At School: July 23 - 28, 2017

When I registered to attend the Equity Exchange, I noticed that there was a self-care strand. Seeing this on the schedule piqued my curiosity because after a grueling school year, I needed some definite personal nurturing.

During my time at TEE, I was so pleased to see that the "self-care" piece was an integral element of the time at the institute. We were presented with a myriad of self-care opportunities. It was woven into every day -- mindfulness exercises, yoga sessions at lunch, personal breaks for walks, an inventory of self-care activities etc. I was so influenced by the experience that I was able to integrate it into my personal and professional life. I shared it with colleagues in my state as part of a new found personal mission to inspire educators to nurture their minds and souls -- this makes us then ready to educate our students. 

If you are ready for an institute that benefits all aspects of your life as a change agent, the Equity Exchange is for you.
