Participant
Stress Management Workshop

One of the strengths of the [Resilient Teachers] workshop was practicing some of the stress management techniques and then discussing them as a group. I appreciated that she shared her own personal struggles and challenges at work, and know that level of personal connection made me relate more meaningfully to the theories and practices she presented.

Participant
Resilient Teachers-Resilient Students Workshop

I found the mindfulness meditations during her workshop to be very helpful and enlightening for me. All practices and strategies were linked to evidence and resources that I am looking forward to reading and sharing with colleagues. This was an incredible workshop! Best investment for my summer thus far.
