Beyond Teacher Wellness: The Power of Community Care
There is a lot of talk about teacher wellness and self-care being shared in team meetings, conferences and teacher focused websites. However, Nakita Valerio, a writer, researcher, and community organizer states, “Shouting “self-care” at people who actually need “community care” is how we fail people.” The Creative Curriculum embraces Six Positive Messages that highlight the importance of relationships and community for children and families. However, these messages also apply to you, the educator.
Join us as we explore the critical balance of self-care and community care and the connection to the Six Positive Messages to effectively show up for ourselves, our colleagues and the children and families we serve.
