Teachers show up in different forms and in many chapters of a child’s life.
Teaching is literacy and numeracy but, most importantly, it’s showing up with your whole heart. It’s walking kids—and yourself—through the hardest conversations about trauma, loss, grief, racism, or violence. As we work to piece together our education system in the fallout from a global pandemic, the focus must be on the teachers. If the people in charge—those teachers—aren’t okay, the students don’t stand a chance.
This course is for those who need a place to land when they want to be reminded that, simply by the choice of their profession, they are a powerful force in shaping our world.
