The Thriving Learning Communities team is excited to announce two SEL-Strong sessions at the virtual Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) Conference.
Reset Your SEL Best Practices
On Day 4 of the SREB Conference, Lynn Ochs, lifelong educator and Senior Director, Education Programs at Mayerson Academy, will lead a hands-on session, Finding Your Best Self: Activate Your Strengths to Build Resilience.
Through a series of engaging activities, educators will learn strategies they can use to harness their character strengths giving them the resilience to pivot, reboot, and reset to begin the next school year stronger than ever.
This work is critically important after the challenging school year everyone has experienced. As Lynn explains, “Research indicates that if you can access four of your signature strengths regularly, you’re more likely to experience work as a calling.”
Join Lynn on July 9 at 11 AM to rediscover your “why?” and unleash your strengths to be at your very best next year.
Explore Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) from a Strengths-Based Perspective
On July 7 at 9:30 AM, Mayerson Academy strengths-in-education experts Lisa Dillon and Marissa Rowley will offer their insightful strengths-based approach to navigating the intersection of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and social and emotional learning.
Lisa and Marissa will explore how character strengths can be used to navigate DEI related conflicts and model easy-to-use steps to leverage character strengths to build empathy, both for yourself and others. The session will end with new tools to identifying and process a current conflict in your school community.
We hope to see you for an enlightening hour-packed session filled with actionable guidance for building your DEI and SEL muscles stronger than ever before.
