The presentation will discuss what a welcoming and affirming school environment looks and feels like and provide specific data about the demographics of both Oswego County and the Hannibal Central School District. Participants will be asked to reflect upon how the data that is presented might lend itself to possible implicit bias, microaggression, and activation of disgust sensitivities or taboos. Examples of student's experiences will be shared.

Self-care Stations: Anyone working in the education field has a very stressful job and can be prone to compassion fatigue and burnout. One way to combat the possible stressful impacts of our jobs is to prioritize self-care. If you buy into the media definition of self-care, it is all about spa days and drinking wine! However, truly impactful self-care requires tough-mindedness, a deep and personal understanding of your priorities, and a respect for both you and the people you choose to spend your life with. At our self-care stations, participants will be able to visit booths and sample some activities that may be able to help them easily embed positive daily changes in their lives. Self-care station include: My Intent Jewelry; Conscious Ink Tattoos; Zen Tangles; Gratitude Boxes; Journaling/Writing; Sleep; Mindful Eating; Exercise/Movement; Essential Oils; Bubbles; Personal and Professional Reading; Appreciation Anchors and More!
