Schools are currently facing an urgent need to integrate emotional stabilization into all aspects of their communities — for students, faculty and staff, school leaders, and families. Reclaiming emotional health, exercising ownership over how we learn, teach, lead and interact with each other is critical for all of us.
Our emotions are at play all the time; they aren’t separate from our moment-to-moment experience. All our emotions are acceptable — it’s what we do with them that is important. While we typically teach this concept to students as a vital component of social-emotional learning, it’s equally important for adults to have permission and practices to engage in conversations about emotions — especially during challenging times.
In this presentation, the High 5 Adventure Learning Center team will discuss essential strategies for teaching and leading through uncertain, emotional times. We’ll share activities that can be easily incorporated into staff meetings and in-service days, and we’ll share practical tips for addressing the heightened emotions of staff, students, and families. This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity to reflect on the ways in which emotions impact how we show up for members of our school communities and ourselves.
All LIVE attendees will receive a free subscription to High 5's online professional development program: Rebuilding After COVID (a $299 value).
