When you fly on an airplane, if the cabin loses pressure, you are instructed to place your oxygen mask on first before helping others. But educators are especially prone to helping others before taking care of themselves. The result? Anxiety and burnout. In his newest book, William D. Parker explains the root issues surrounding your motivations for serving students and school communities as well as ten essential principles all educators need for personal and professional growth. This presentation provides guided exploration, discussion, and consultation for personal goal-setting, self-improvement, and helpful strategies. Invest in self-care so that you can stay inspired in serving students and school communities. Educator self-care is essential for caring for others. Take time to pause, breathe, and flourish as an educator.
