This workshop highlights what is required of school Science Departments with respect to the OSHA Chemical Hygiene Regulations under 29CFR1910.1450.
Research is telling us that a "substantial amount of our ability to be resilient is fostered in our daily habits." Cultivating a resilient way of being can enable us to thrive, not just survive. We also know from a study out of the MU College of Education, that teachers with low levels of stress and high coping ability were practically non-existent! As we dive deeper into the work of Social Emotional Learning for our students, it is vital that we look at teachers and all adults working in schools through this lens. Onward takes us on an inward journey toward building resilience so that we may be our most authentic and best self, so that we may "listen to students and their families" by allowing us to "keep our hearts open". Resilience allows us to have difficult conversations, supports collaboration through change, and builds our confidence in managing our own and others' intense emotions. Join us on this year long PD journey, as we explore the research on human resilience, psychology, systems thinking and change management. Teams are encouraged to participate together. The impact on the culture of your organization will be powerful! We will have a kick off meeting on June 4th. Following that meeting we will be engaging in a closed Facebook group. There will be no required question prompts. Engagement will depend on your capacity to do so. There will be monthly topics aligned with chapters of the book. The workbook offers activities and processes that support the monthly topic. Collaboration and reflection through the work will benefit each of us individually as well as the entire group. Please do not commit if you are not willing to engage and offer support in this way. Ideally, you can engage in this work with others from your building or district so that your inner work will collectively benefit your organization in deeper and wider ways. ***For educators who register after May 8th, there may be a slight delay in receiving your book due to ordering deadlines.
