Protecting Ourselves from Burnout: Part 2

Friday, March 05 | 06:15 PM - 07:00 PM

Session 3: Workshops
  • Leadership
  • Specialized Content Area
  • Workshop
  • General Interest

Stress and burnout are a real part of our lives. As Montessori educators, we stepped into the classroom out of our love for children and the ability to creatively serve their possibility. Yet as days are filled with constant decision making, tending to the needs of others, parent concerns, financial uncertainty, going virtual, and teaching with a mask on, it’s normal to feel exhausted. Join this interactive 2-part workshop where we study the indicators of burnout, reflect on current research on stress management, and share ideas for recharging so that our work remains transformative for the children and for you.

We encourage you to participate in Part 1 of this workshop before engaging in Part 2.
