Systemic racism and racial bias negatively impact the social, emotional, and academic lives of non-white students, teachers, and staff in our schools. The multiple impacts of these issues are both immediate and long-lasting. In this course, participants will explore racial identity and racial privilege. Awareness, knowledge, and understanding of systemic inequity; of one's own racial and cultural identity; and students' racial and cultural identity are cornerstones for teaching that more effectively meet the need of all students, and in particular, non-white students and historically marginalized students.

Humans have an incredible capacity for happiness but many hold tight to negative thinking. This limits growth, an ability to find passion or motivation, and quite simply, an inability to see the opportunity in tomorrow. It’s important to understand the science behind your evolutionary bias for hanging on to negative experiences. Did you know, there is a specific part of your brain, the amygdala, that is responsible for how you respond to situations and experiences?? Neuroscience has shown our ability to concentrate on happy thoughts depends the amygdala response. The goal of this course is to teach you how to train your mind to cultivate happiness and recognize when the brain is lying to you.
