Hey Educators, how are you doing? It has been a heck of a year! What have you done for yourself lately? Let's talk about self compassion, shall we? According to Kristen Neff, self-compassion entails being warm and understanding toward ourselves when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate, rather than ignoring our pain or flagellating ourselves with self-criticism. We treat ourselves the way we would treat a friend who was struggling or suffering. Practicing self-compassion involves taking action and making positive changes in our lives and when we do we can reconnect with their deep motivation and excitement for helping others. In this asynchronous learning module, you will be given the tools and resources to begin exploring self compassion in your life, understand and transform habitual responses and overcome self-criticism and develop an open heart and resilience through self-appreciation The science shows that self-compassion has a significant positive impact on educator well-being, resilience, and stress management. Content will be delivered through a Smore newsletter. Content available June 15th.
This summer journey will invite the participant to come with a journal, a pen that glides across the page and a copy of Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones. This is not just about writing practice, whether you want to be a writer or just a casual scribbler. It is also a way to view writing as study of the mind, as self-discovery and a Zen-like activity. All of this can lead to greater self-awareness, insight and resilience. We will gather on Zoom once a week for 6 weeks for 90 minutes. During this time we will discuss sections of the book Writing Down the Bones, engage in timed writing practice and read without comment or feedback. Don't be intimated by this last point - trust me, it is important. **participants must purchase their own copy of Writing Down the Bones

"When readers are supported socially and emotionally in their reading and writing processes, they acquire a sense of agency over text, and suddenly they begin to see reading in a different light." This is a quote from the book Talking Through Reading and Writing written by Oswego County educators Dan Rose and Christine Walsh.

Life can feel quite scattered and stressful, even on our best days, let alone when life holds disruption and uncertainty. We tend to walk through our days living in the past or future, rehashing and rehearsing, and spend very little time in the present moment. When we lack awareness in the present moment, we experience consequences such as: We do not realize how our mood can influence our experiences We do not realize we carry tension and stress in the body We miss out on the positive and joyful moments life offers We miss information needed to make wise and loving decisions We hold on to unpleasant experiences for longer than necessary (A Clinician's Guide to Teaching Mindfulness, Christianne Wolf & J. Greg Serpa) Mindfulness Meditation is the intentional directing of attention on the present moment experience with loving awareness. The goal is to rest in this awareness and cultivate an open heart and open mind. This 6 week course will offer the foundations of Mindfulness Meditation that can support resilience and open-hearted awareness.

8. What We Say and How We Say it Matter: Teacher Talk That Improves Student Learning and Behavior

Program: School Improvement

Audience: All those who interact with students

Dates: 7/14/2021 to 8/4/2021

Book Study Opportunity: We all want our students to feel safe, collaborate well with others, feel ownership for their learning, and be joyfully engaged in their work. What teachers say to students--when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories--all affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. Join me for a jigsaw style book study to explore the many examples provided by the author Mike Anderson. An informational meeting will be held on 7/12/21 at 9:00am via Zoom, to discuss meeting protocols. All participants are responsible for gaining access to their copy of the book to bring to our meetings.

Workshop Description: Helping students become musically literate is central to the school, community, and church music curriculum. While there is much agreement about why we should teach sight singing and musicianship skills, there is less agreement about how we should teach those skills. Far too often students are taught to be savvy symbol decoders rather than independent literate musicians.

Working from the premise that students learn musical skills in much the same order as they do language skills, participants will explore how we ‘learn' music through hearing and imitating patterns before reading (translating notation into sound) and writing (translating sound into notation). The pedagogy also includes a sequence of instruction that results in a strong link between sound and notation.

The TAKADIMI rhythm-pedagogy system, a beat-oriented system whose originators see it as evolving from Gordon's syllables, will be incorporated. The rhythm syllables can easily be adapted to elementary through adult choral and instrumental rehearsals in the church and K-Collegiate setting.

Workshop participants will also be presented with teaching strategies and techniques for integrating and applying literacy skills to appropriate repertoire. Special attention will be given to the development of curriculum maps.

Collaboration is messy work, sometimes. We assume we can bring people together and magical things will happen! We all know this is not always the case. In fact, it is often not the case at all. How do we begin to reflect on and grow our own emotional intelligence and that of team members so that we can move forward intentionally with our work in the interest of those we serve? Let's explore the Rumble Process. Brene Brown says, "A rumble is a discussion, conversation, or meeting defined by a commitment to lean into vulnerability, to stay curious and generous, to stick with the messy middle of problem identification and solving, to take a break and circle back when necessary, to be fearless in owning our parts, and, as psychologist Harriet Lerner teaches, to listen with the same passion with which we want to be heard." This module will offer an overview of the process and opportunities for reflection. For further support, reach out to Liane Benedict, who can facilitate your team through this process more deeply.
