Gesu School Virtual Symposium: Surviving and Thriving: Supporting Our Teachers in These Challenging Times – Nov 2

Posted by Gesu School on October 11, 2022

All are welcome to Gesu School’s Virtual Symposium, Surviving and Thriving: Supporting Our Teachers in These Challenging Times. Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, school life was growing ever more complex. Expectations kept rising, but budgets, staffing, and facilities didn’t. Then came a lethal pandemic that upended everything in schools, followed by a racial reckoning and a toxic political controversy about schools. The result: unprecedented pressure on teachers and leaders, which has damaged morale and confidence and caused many to leave the field. How can educators respond constructively? How can they maintain their caring, energy, and competence? Keynote Speaker, Rob Evans, Ed.D., will outline practical ways to reduce stress and restore hope both individually and as a school community.

The symposium is free and takes place on November 2, 2022, 5:00-6:30 PM. The format is virtual with question & answer.
