The Power of Never Giving Up!

We all have dreams and passions. The hardest part is often bringing them to tangible fruition.

We encourage our students and kids to reach for their dreams, but when it comes to our own, those dreams can so easily get lost in the midst of our never-ending daily to-do lists. And then when our kids do step out to follow their dreams, we can get fearful that their paths will be too difficult.

Supporting the Whole Teacher

10/23/2022
Amid the multitude of extra demands constantly being placed on educators and the alarming and growing teacher shortage crisis, it has become clear that we must find ways to ensure that teachers are well-supported and that their needs are being met. It is vital that we create school environments that can support the WHOLE teacher, environments that help them stay connected to their “why” and fulfill their servant hearts. The challenge and reality is that being of support to the whole teacher requires a much deeper level of systematic change than typical teacher appreciation efforts provide. Join Paula and her remarkable guest as they share essential, proven ideas and strategies to create positive, healthy, and support-filled environments that teachers need to thrive. And when educators thrive, they are best able to teach and help their students thrive. This promises to be a life-changing hour for anyone in education or anyone who cares about children, teachers, and the educational system.
