When COVID-19 forced schools around the country to transition to a fully remote learning model, it proved to be a challenging spring semester for both educators and students. With uncertainty around the fall still looming, educators these days are feeling burned out and anxious – and we don’t blame them!
Since the start of widespread school closures, communities like TeachersConnect have been using GoToWebinar to host virtual sessions on how to provide powerful online learning experiences. An online community for educators, TeachersConnect’s goal is to provide practical tools and techniques that can be easily implemented in the classroom.
So if you’re an educator who’s feeling a bit overwhelmed, don’t worry! TeachersConnect is hosting two upcoming webinars on how to create an environment of peace in the classroom – whether it be in-person or virtual:
Webinar #1: From Chaos to Calm: Yoga and Mindfulness For You and Your Students
Using the most effective yoga and mindfulness tools, learn to navigate whatever the fall may bring. Kids’ yogi, recording artist, and mindfulness expert Bari Koral is loved for her fun approaches to creating peace and calm in the classroom. And for this session, she’ll be joined by Gab Lemon, a classroom teacher who’s been using Bari’s techniques with her students.
You’ll leave with some amazing new skills, and you’ll be ready to support your students (and yourself) when you get back to the “classroom” – whatever that looks like!
