Course No. ED477y, ED577y

Do you want to feel more fulfilled, successful, and joyful at work? Do you feel depleted energetically and overwhelmed by what is being asked and expected of you as an educator? Do you have the energy necessary to tap into your creativity, productivity, and optimism needed for excellent teaching and learning? Working with Elena Aguilar’s book, Onward, you will cultivate your emotional resilience to help you thrive as an educator. You will explore practices that will help to shift your thinking, feeling, and behaviors and lead you on your path to rediscover your passion and purpose. Prompts and activities from The Onward Workbook will be woven throughout the course to help you deepen and expand your thinking. You will strengthen your inner resilience so you can start to respond to unexpected disruptions and challenges from a place of calm. Resilience is cultivated with intentional action and dedication to practice. If you have hopes and dreams of helping your students build their own emotional resilience and strength, it must also be cultivated, nourished, and tended to inside yourself.

This course is appropriate for teachers K-12.
